Mineola Museum Presents Santa’s Workshop
There’s a magical Christmas display at the Mineola Historical Museum on 114 North Pacific that includes Santa’s House and scenes of the 12 days of Christmas painted and glittered as postage stamps. It’s a perfect theme next to this historic building that used to be the old post office.
The Christmas Postage Stamp Lane is a drive through that leads to Santa’s Workshop. This very special decorated little red structure holds many wonderful memories from Christmas past. Zeb and Louise Love owned and operated the house at their Lake Brenda residence for several years. He collected toys to distribute to all children who visited Santa at the little red house. The family donated Santa’s Workshop to the museum after Zeb passed away last year and a group of people decided to continue the tradition.
The little red house is now anchored at the end of Postage Stamp Lane. There is a marker established beside Santa’s Workshop, with the facts of Zeb and his efforts to bring joy to many children each year and his famous adventures as the Love Conductor when he was an employee for the AMTRAK Texas Eagle.
In the door of Santa’s Workshop is a letter drop for the children to send their Christmas wish list to Santa. Children are invited to come see him in his workshop from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, December 15. There will be surprises and toys for each child.
