At a sold out Preview Party, guests were invited to be the first to experience the magic of "Christmas at Glendower" with dinner at the Golden Lamb followed by a private preview of Glendower Mansion's lavish decor.
At what would become the most successful to date, guests came to see Lebanon's historic Glendower Mansion artfully adorned for the season. For six weeks (Nov. 23rd - Dec. 29th) the charming touch the interior designers created in the halls of this elegant estate left guests feeling warm and ready for the holidays. The on-site Gift Shop full of holiday decor, children's books and toys, jewelry and other fine museum gifts allowed guests to bring some of the magic home.

Between November 29th and December 1st, guests of all ages were greeted by a scale model train display inside the Lebanon Conference and Banquet Center, featuring the work of Dayton N-Track.
This FREE event was sponsored by Main Street Lebanon & the Warren County Historical Society as a part of Main Street's Christmas in Lebanon.
A second FREE model train exhibit, Tiny Trains, created by the Miami Valley S-Gaugers, will be on display in the Lebanon Conference and Banquet Center (121 S. Broadway, Lebanon, OH 45036).
The Bones of Cincinnatus performed holiday season classics, arranged for the unique capabilities of a trombone ensemble to a sold out Lunch and Learn crowd.
Then, the LHS Choir performed a special FREE holiday concert, Singing in the Season.
For the second year, WCHS is held its Christmas Tree Decorating Contest and Auction at Harmon Museum. This event was a huge success, both as a fundraiser for Harmon Museum’s children’s education programs but also as a community event. Staff and WCHS Board members purchased 55 three foot artificial Christmas trees and handed them out to individuals, businesses, schools and shops to decorate. Once decorated, the trees were displayed on the Village Green, of Harmon Museum. During Lebanon’s Horse Drawn Carriage Parade, on December 7th, admission was FREE as we asked that folks vote for their favorite trees and then go on-line to bid in the auction. Thanks to the generosity of the businesses, organizations and individuals that decorated and donated their trees to our auction.
If you were the winner of an online auction and have yet to pick up your tree, you may do so at Harmon Museum (105 S. Broadway, Lebanon OH 45036) during normal business hours. Tues-Fri 9-4pm and Sat 10-5pm.
