Looking for a Thanksgiving tradition with your family?

Look no further. The Lawrence County Historical Museum, located at 506 S. Sixth St. is opening its doors on Thanksgiving Day from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.

My family has enjoyed taking a stroll down Sixth Street after a hearty meal to visit the museum for more than 10 years.

As you go from room to room admiring the Christmas decorations and listening to Christmas music, you have the opportunity to learn and teach your children about where they live and the history that preceded them.

Make sure that you stop in the gift shop before you leave. There are unique gifts that would make that someone who has everything easier to shop for.

Oh, and don’t forget to drop a little change on your way out the door. The museum is free to everyone, but it will only be able to stay open if we continue to support it.

If you cannot make the visit on Thanksgiving Day, the museum will be open on the weekends until the middle of December.

We can be thankful for many things on this day. Let us remember to give thanks to that handful of men and women who, through many hours of volunteering, keep our museum open for us to learn and enjoy.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
