OMAHA, Neb. — It’s only June, but one museum in Omaha is already getting into the Christmas spirit.
The Durham Museum is already searching for its annual Christmas tree to be displayed later in the year at its Union Station.
Every year, the museum seeks an evergreen tree from Omaha-area residents to display at Christmas. To be considered, the tree must be more than 40 feet tall, have a single, straight trunk, be uniform in shape with no bare spots and be located in a spot where it can be safely removed.
This year’s tree will be harvested Nov. 13 by Union Pacific and decorated by David M. Mangelsen’s. The tree lighting will be held on Nov. 24.
Residents wishing to donate a tree are encouraged to contact the museum before Aug. 1.
