Dundee Historical Society


Christmas is coming early this year.

Celebrate with us on Sunday, July 28 at1:30pm at the museum and hear the story of Santa’s Village.

Guest speaker Phillip Wenz will share the “History and Memories of Santa’s Village”. His presentation will give us a behind the scenes view of the “Village” as well as a look at some of the original artifacts and rare historic photos.  Hear about the old days when Santa first came to spend his summers in East Dundee and share memories from the old village.

Mr. Wenz, aka Santa from Santa’s Village, has been the jolly symbol for over 30 years.  His publication about the “Village” will be available for purchase.

There will be presents under the tree, cookies on the plate, candy in the jar and music in the air.
