Greenbrier Historical Society hosts Teddy Bear Program

The Christmas holiday is a wonderful time to spend with family and friends, but as the school break continues you may be looking for activities for your children! The Greenbrier Historical Society welcomes families to the North House Museum’s “Becoming Christmas” exhibit which highlights the origin of some of our Christmas traditions and features a wonderful collection of antique teddy bears and dolls.

As part of the exhibit, GHS will host a free Teddy Bear themed educational program for age 4-6 and 7-10 on Monday, Dec. 29. Free of charge. Children will hear the story of how the teddy bear was invented, learn some real life bear facts, and compare their teddy bears to those of children years ago. The program is free and should last just over an hour, depending on the children’s level of interest.

For age 4-6, the program will begin at 10 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 29; and for age 7-10, the program will begin at 1 p.m. Both groups will meet in the lobby of the North House, located at 301 W. Washington Street in Lewisburg. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

For more information or to sign up for the program, call 304-645-3398 or email
