Charlie Brown Christmas Tree Ornaments – BHC Museum Collection

Some of you may recall the “Charlie Brown” Christmas Tree that graced Reading’s streets two years ago. It was so named because the tree was so dilapidated and depressing that it reminded many residents of the fictional character’s tree. News of Reading’s sad tree reached national news outlets and became a local celebrity.

After the holidays wood from the tree was turned into several items, including these ornaments made by Steve Weber, a carpentry instructor at the Reading Muhlenberg Career & Technology Center. This small piece of Berks History is now commemorated in the BHC Museum Collection.
