Make plans to get into the Christmas spirit by visiting the Seneca County Museum this holiday season! The theme for this year is “Angels Among Us”, so much the building will be decked out with angels everywhere! The Seneca County Museum is the former home of Tiffin’s first millionaire, Rezin Shawhan, so this mansion is already a spectacular place to see. But each year during the Christmas Season, volunteers start early and work hard to outdo the decorations from years past. There are Christmas trees, decorations and lights in every room and we are so pleased to once again have the expertise of Rogers Flowers of Tiffin completely decorate the museum’s east parlor. Along with the amazing decorations, there will be a quilt display, refreshments, crafts for kids and live music on December 1st. Don’t miss out on this wonderful holiday tradition of making the Seneca Museum a part of your Christmas Season plans!

Iconic comedian Louie Anderson, the three-time Emmy Award® winner, is one of the country's most recognized and adored comics; named by Comedy Central as "One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time." His career has spanned more than 30 years. As a standup, he shares the ups and downs of his childhood experiences as one of eleven children in Minnesota, Louie crafted comedy routines that rang true for his early club audiences while reducing them to helpless fits of laughter, routines that led him from his career as a counselor to troubled children to his national television debut on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1984. The rest is history. He has guest starred in sitcoms like "Grace Under Fire" and dramas like "Touched by an Angel" and "Chicago Hope," and he has had memorable featured roles in film comedies like "Coming to America," opposite of Eddie Murphy, and the classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
