McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - A replica of the Fulton House, a downtown McConnellsburg landmark, is the first in a series of buildings represented on Christmas ornaments to be sold every year by the Fulton County Tourist Promotion Agency.
The molded ornaments with raised features are hand-painted, signed and numbered, said Mary Hoover, director of the tourism agency.
They sell for $15 each, she said. For another $3, buyers can get a stand on which to display their ornaments year-round after the holidays, Hoover said.
Samples of similar ornaments were seen by Helen Overly at a trade show. She said the committee embraced the idea and ordered 500 ornaments.
