History museum calendars offer gift of old and new

The Sycamore History Museum is offering the gift of old and new for holiday shoppers this season. This year they are selling 2013 (new) calendars with a wide variety of historic (old) images.

“We are very excited about these calendars,” Michelle Donahoe, executive director of the Sycamore History Museum, said in a news release. “They are a wonderful combination of some of the best images in our collection. Children, elephants, golf, dancing and the old Chicago and Northwestern depot are just a few of the photographs that are featured.”

The calendar includes the traditional holidays, but it also lists all of the Sycamore History Museum’s events. Many of these events are free or less than $5.

Calendars cost $12 and are available to purchase at Sweet Earth and at the Sycamore History Museum, 1730 N. Main St. For more information, call 815-895-5762 or visit www.sycamorehistory.org.
