A SEASON FOR SANTAS is on display through January 6 at Healdsburg Museum. See the extensive collection of Santas from the tiny to the towering: framed, fluffy, knitted, whittled, ceramic, motorized, silly, rare and special. Wayne Padd’s model train village will return and the scale model of the Healdsburg Plaza, c. 1900, will be decorated for Christmas.

Have you ever wondered what Northern California was like 75,100, or even 150 years ago? The area has changed and grown so much over the years that it is hard to look back and imagine what it once was. The Healdsburg Museum is dedicated to reminding and educating people what the area was like and how it evolved into what it is today.
The museum features fascinating and fun exhibits that display artifacts from the Pomo and Wappo Indians who inhabited the area long ago. There are interesting exhibits dealing with the lumber and mining industries, and town life in the area from the mid- to late-1800s to the early 1900s.
Their current exhibition, A SEASON FOR SANTAS is on display through January 6. See the extensive collection of Santas from the tiny to the towering: framed, fluffy, knitted, whittled, ceramic, motorized, silly, rare and special.
