Richfield Relives Christmas 1977

The Richfield History Center has opened its newest display.

The Richfield History Center is giving visitors a glimpse into the past with its newest exhibit "Richfield Christmas 1977."

The exhibit features scenes from a typical 1970s Christmas, with the colors orange and green overwhelming the Christmas tree itself. This could be the beginning of a tradition, with the center picking a different year to bring back each holiday season, according to a Sun Current article.

The display can be viewed until Jan. 7, 2012 from noon to 8 p.m. Wednesdays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, call the Richfield History Center at 612-798-6140.

And if you missed the center's recent "History in Plain Sight" exhibit, .

Very cool. I wonder where they get all this stuff!

Many of the "artifacts" are on loan from Richfielders. A little macrame here...a vintage star wars comic there...it took a savvy intern, though, to find a 1977 Farrah Fawcett thermal mug (it was her dad's)!

That is awesome! My dad constantly holds on to things, so If you do something from the 50s next year, my dad has his old wooden sled!
