Trees, Trains, and Traditions
October 17 – December 31, 2019

From the Revolutionary War Hessians bringing a tree in from the cold before the Battle of Trenton in December of 1776 all the way up to the present day, the Christmas tree has become a standard symbol of the celebration of Christmas in America. For many Americans, the image of a Christmas tree would be incomplete without a toy train set running underneath it.

This Christmas season, The Liberty Bell Museum’s holiday exhibit will feature “Trees, Trains, and Traditions.” We will explore the history of Christmas trees and the putz and trains that have been set up beneath them over the centuries. Let your inner child out and your nostalgia run wild as you enter the world of Christmas past through “Trees, Trains, and Traditions.”
