Donated by Curtis Hornor

The Samuel Ferdinand Hornor family of Lake Village (Chicot County), Arkansas, made their Christmas tree sparkle in the 1920s with this festive set of lights. Note the patriotic dirigible (airship) ornament next to Santa Claus.

The lights were passed down to Hornor’s grandson, Curtis Hornor of Springdale, who donated them to the Shiloh Museum in 1997.
