Changes in Store For Popular Holiday Exhibit

Posted: Updated:

Stuhr Museum's last exhibit before a multi-million renovation is wrapping up.

More than 90 trees are featured in this year's Fantasy of Trees, but they won't be returning to the Stuhr Building next year. That's when a $7 million renovation will be underway.

"We'll still do Christmas Past and Present next year regardless of the renovation. We'll be celebrating just as big as we always have," said curator Kari Stofer.

Stofer said Stuhr staff have a few locations in mind for Fantasy of Tree hosts, but one tree will likely not be returning.

The Union Pacific Employee Club #16 tree has been a holiday staple in Grand Island for the last 29 years.

"Most of the ornaments and everything has been made by rail employees and the ribbons; but our club is dying so we're going to end it," said club member Wayne Huebner.

Huebner said the group started putting up the tree back in 1984 when there was a five foot height limit.

You can still see all the Christmas Past and Present exhibits through January 2.
