With the holidays right around the corner, are you looking for a stocking stuffer, hostess gift, or something to make your tree sparkle? Then look no further! The Historic Shepherdstown Commission is introducing their second annual holiday ornament, The Old Market House, also known as the Shepherdstown Library.
The Old Market House was chosen as this year’s ornament because it is the iconic symbol of Shepherdstown. The design itself was chosen based on a photograph by Al Freund, a frequent photographer of the Shepherdstown Library. With help from Tom Pollard Designs, that photograph was turned into the impressive ornament that you see.
The first Historic Shepherdstown ornament, depicting McMurran Hall, was issued last year. If you did not purchase the 2015 ornament, a few remain. Each ornament is $20.00 or you may purchase both for $35.00. Ornaments may be purchased at the multiple locations:
Shepherdstown Museum during Christmas in Shepherdstown (Saturdays, 11-5; Sundays, 1-4)
Historic Shepherdstown office at the Entler, 129 E. German St., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, 9:30-5:30
Four Seasons Books
Shepherd University Bookstore
Hair Graphics Beauty Salon
It is our hope that this will become a family tradition and that you will be as excited to see the unveiling of each new ornament as we are. Whether you live in Shepherdstown, have a connection to Shepherdstown, went to college at Shepherd University, or just love the quaint feel of this community – we hope you will support this endeavor. The proceeds go to support Historic Shepherdstown Museum programs.
