The Tazewell County Genealogical & Historical Society decided to create a limited edition pewter Christmas ornament to mark the 175th anniversary of the founding of Pekin, the Tazewell County seat.

We are delighted in how the ornament turned out - the above photo really doesn't do justice to the texture and depth of the winter scene of a sleigh hauling a Christmas tree past an early settler's barn!  This is a high-quality heavy pewter ornament - approximately 3 inches across!  And, they are going fast!

Get yours today while our limited supply lasts!  The ornament is only $15.00 $7.50 and is available at our society's library during our normal hours or email the society and someone will make arrangements to meet and help you complete your purchase.

As you can see, it comes in a nice gift box - so many folks are buying several for gift giving.  When they are gone - they will be gone forever!  If you need to order by mail, add an additional $2.00 for shipping & handling (it's heavy!) - you can also order online from our publications page.
