Step into the John and Annie Glenn Museum in New Concord and you'll take a step back in time -- literally. Museum curators say the living history homestead could attract many visitors during the holiday season, so they agreed to keep the doors open and won't shut them until Dec. 31. Assistant Museum Director Lorle Porter says staff members created a 1940's homestead -- complete with appropriate Christmas decorations. The museum is featuring the year 1944 -- a year Glenn was away at war. Still, curators contacted Glenn and his wife to make sure decorations were adequately -- including popcorn strung on the Christmas tree. But, Porter says the homestead has more to offer than old ornaments. Each room in the house is filled with items that represent the era and museum workers have history lessons to accompany every, single item. The museum will stay open every Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and on Sundays from 1-4 p.m. The museum will be closed Dec. 5 and on the holidays. The museum will close down for winter months on Dec. 31 and it will re-open next spring.
