2013 Holiday Show and Craft Show – The History of Asbury Park High School

2013 Holiday Show and Craft Show –
The History of Asbury Park High School
Saturday, December 7, 2013, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, and
Sunday, December, 8, 2013, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Eden Woolley 703 Deal Road, Ocean, NJ 07712


What better way to launch this year’s holiday season than a visit to the Eden Woolley House, 703 Deal Road, Ocean Township, the first weekend of December? For two days—from 11 to 4, Saturday and Sunday, December 7 and 8—the Museum is transformed for the holidays. One gallery is bedecked with model trains and miniature houses. Another is turned into a charming Museum Shop and Bakery, packed full of home--‐made treats and locally crafted items—from hand--‐knit hats and toys, to hand--‐quilted throws and table runners, to hand--‐sewn doll outfits. It’s the perfect time and place to shop local for one--‐of--‐a--‐kind, work--‐of--‐art holiday gifts.

The Holiday Weekend is also the premiere of the Museum’s mini--‐exhibit on the history of Asbury Park High School, featuring vintage photos, school newspapers, yearbooks, and memorabilia. The story of the school is a fitting complement to the Museum’s major exhibit: “Asbury Park: The History of a Jersey Gem,” currently on display. Whether Asbury alums (as many from the Township of Ocean were, as we were a sending district until the opening of Ocean Township High School in 1965) or newcomers to the area, guests will find the facts, photos, and artifacts of both exhibits well worth the visit.

There is something for everyone. Children will have fun finding the hidden treasures in “History Hunt.” Children and adults alike can enjoy the model train encircling Steinbach’s Department Store, Christmas 1955. Those who have bought their raffle tickets will learn at 3 on Sunday, December 8, this year’s winner
of the Museum’s hand--‐made quilt.

Suggested donation is $3.00. Children are admitted free.
