This month’s exhibit features a collection of holiday ornaments created by the Kingston Lions Club between 1991 and 2001.  Each limited edition glass ball bears the likeness of a Kingston icon — from the old Town Hall and Soldier’s Monument to Bildad Washburn’s Tavern on Main Street and the fish ladder on the Jones River near the Elm Street Bridge.  Alongside each ornament is a historic photograph of the building or scene depicted.  Stop by and take a look.
