The holiday season brings a full slate of must-see movies, among them, “A Christmas Story,” “White Christmas,” and “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The Upcountry History Museum – Furman University was featured in The New York Times for the museum’s tribute to Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas.” The special exhibition about the 1954 musical romantic comedy includes original costumes, props and memorabilia from the film – many items borrowed from the permanent collection at the Rosemary Clooney House in Augusta, Kentucky.

Clooney, Bing Crosby, Vera-Ellen and Danny Kaye star in the blockbuster film as as a group of entertainers who try to save a struggling Vermont  lodge after World War II. Short videos about the exhibition are available on the museum’s Instagram and YouTube channels. The exhibition is on view through Jan. 30, 2021.
