Christmas in Boomtown: Annual holiday celebration set for Saturday, December 9

Did you know that the first mention of Santa’s Reindeer was in 1823 in a poem entitled Old Santeclaus with Much Delight? So, in 1901, that first Christmas after the Lucas Gusher, the children would have been watching for Santa’s reindeer.

“One thing we like to do in Gladys City is to take people back in time We want people to imagine that first Christmas after the Lucas Gusher blew and the excitement people must have felt,” said Museum Director Troy Gray.
