Plainsboro’s Wicoff House to hold Christmas exhibit Jan. 15

By: Emily Craighead
   Christmas at the Wicoff House, home of the Plainsboro Historical Society, will last through the third week in January.
   The decorations and displays are reminiscent of what Christmas would have been like for Plainsboro’s founding families in the 1920s and 1930s.
   Wicoff family Christmas cards from the 1930s are displayed in the foyer, with "Season’s greetings from our house to your house," written under an aerial photograph of the house.
   Other items from the Wicoff family include original Christmas balls and ornaments, Christmas cards from family members, childrens’ holiday books and toys, sleds, bikes, miniature wagons, a rocking horse, dolls, board games, jigsaw puzzles, paddleballs, and jacks. Most of the items were owned by J.V.B. Wicoff’s children from the early part of the 20th century.
   The museum, located at 641 Plainsboro Road, will be open between 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Jan. 15.
