The Mahoning Valley Historical Society will have extended hours for its 13th “Memories of Christmas Past” exhibit at the Arms Family Museum, 648 Wick Ave., during the week of Dec. 27.

The Arms Family Museum will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 27-29. The exhibit will be open until 7 p.m. Dec. 30 for Twilight Thursday. The final day of the exhibit will be Dec. 31, from noon to 7 p.m.

This exhibit’s overall theme, “Back to Greystone,” portrays festive décor and traditions during the 1900s to the 1930s, inspired by how Olive F. A. Arms might have dressed and decorated her home in that era. The exhibit blends Arms’ love of nature — flowers and birds in particular — with her approach to welcoming guests into her home.
