The Clarence Brown Conference Center received an early Christmas present
this year. It is a fabulous Department 56®
Original Snow Village® Christmas Collection that was 30 years in the making, lovingly added to
each year by long-time Cartersville resident, the late Zel Burnett.
The village consists of hundreds of vintage houses, shoppes, vehicles,
trains and the miniature residents of the village who enjoy the perpetual
Holiday cheer of their town. The village was lovingly reconstructed this
past fall for the first time since Mrs. Burnett’s passing in 2014
by her daughter Tracy Earwood and friends. The assembly started in November
and was completed earlier this month.
The Burnett Christmas
Snow Village® will be on display in the lobby of the Clarence Brown Conference Center
until after the first of the New Year. Anyone interested in dropping by
to enjoy the village is encouraged to do so Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. till
5:00 p.m. and Saturday 11:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m.
