Department 56 Historical Landmark Series

Welcome to my web site. I am an avid Department 56 collector and decorate my entire house with Department 56 houses and accessories for Christmas. The purpose of this site is to allow you to view the various displays. In the navigation bar above:

I began collecting Department 56 Dickens Village houses in 1997. Since that time I have obained most of the collection issued through 2000 and several more that were issued since then. I have also added a significant number of North Pole and North Pole Woods pieces and a few pieces from Christmas in the City. I'd love to add more, but I've run out of room to display and store them!

Collecting and displaying Department 56 houses has become a serious hobby for me. I start assembling the various displays you will find on this site in early November of each year, with a goal of having everything up and "tweaked" by the first of December. It takes me 4-5 weeks of very long days, but it is a labor of love. I start taking the displays down in early February, which is another couple of weeks of fun.

If you have comments or questions that aren't answered in the FAQ section, please email me acccording to the directions in "Contact Us" in the menu bar above. I'd love to hear from you.
