Because this will take so long I will do little writing on this. We start with the entrance and a few houses there. Much of what I had went into show cases. Hard to display the way I would like but - well it's a museum. I hope it attracts enough attention that the "board" decides to accept it as an acquisition. It will be up through April. .

As you can see the opening display is not of haciendas. Most of my haciendas are on display. Some large and some rare.
On top of the show case are some boxed sets and a few (all I own) candy box houses. Notice the interesting Hacienda boxed set.

On to the haciendas! They had big showcases and the museum director decided to put them in them. Not a lovely display but at least you can see them. I wish I had had more time and felt up to the task of creating a pretty display. This old guy doesn't get up off the floor too well anymore.

This group is NOT my best display work but we got them down. Fortunately the museum director did it and I didn't have to crawl on my hands and feet. My Idea is to get they OUT there so the local people can see the possibilities for themselves.

This last Hacienda Village has some of my favorite ones in it. Some no doubt fairly uncommon. Enjoy!

Just a couple of more things. There was an antique trunk there so we put a couple of things on it. Also the director wanted to use my cotton top churches so she put them out too. Merry Christmas TO ALL.
