“A Coal Camp Christmas” will be presented before the Kentucky Opry’s Christmas shows at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. The exhibit depicts a coal camp house living room Christmas scene circa 1930s. It includes a fireplace mantle, rocking chair, coffee table, end table, and oil lamps, and a live cedar Christmas tree decorated with string popcorn, picture ornaments and cotton balls representing snowflakes.
