On January 7, 2018, the National Christmas Center of Paradise, Pennsylvania, closed its doors.
Jim Morrison, founder, curator, and historian of the center, along with his business partner, Dave Murtaugh, began a search for someone who could purchase the center’s Christmas collections and keep the spirit of Christmas alive by continuing to share these treasures with others.
In early 2019, the Christmas collection was carefully packed, loaded onto numerous tractor trailers, and transported to a climate-controlled storage area where it will be monitored, cleaned, restored, and put into full working order until its new home is ready.
There will also be several new and exciting collections added, all under the watchful eyes of Santa Morrison.
The National Christmas Center will be housed in 40,000 S.F. of the future restored Barns of Belmont.
