Peg Albert, 63, of Sterling, talks about the Lincoln-Manahan Home's old cast iron stove at an open house held Saturday afternoon at the museum to show visitors how an 1850s Christmas might be celebrated. Many visitors came to the small, fully restored home at 607 E. Third St. in Sterling which was decorated for the period.
