Oscar Anderson House to celebrate Swedish Christmas

OSCAR ANDERSON HOUSE MUSEUM WILL BE OPEN FOR SWEDISH CHRISTMAS
THE FIRST TWO WEEKENDS IN DECEMBER

ANCHORAGE – The Municipality of Anchorage invites the community to celebrate Swedish
Christmas the first two weekends of December at the Historic Oscar Anderson House Museum.
The museum is located at 420 “M” Street in Elderberry Park, along the Tony Knowles Coastal
Trail.

Kids of all ages will enjoy the decorations and hearing about Christmas in Anchorage in the early
1900s.

For art lovers, local artist Cindy Pendleton used the Oscar Anderson House as her Christmas
benefit project this year. Ms. Pendleton recently painted this historic icon in a snowy winter scene
hailing from its first years on the bluff. Proceeds from the sale of Christmas cards printed from
her painting will be used to defray operational costs for the Oscar Anderson House Museum in
the coming year.

The house will be decorated and ready for visitors Saturday and Sunday, December 3 and 4, and
10 and 11. Guided tours will be held between 12 - 4 p.m. each of those days.
