Throwback Thursday: White Christmas

If you were dreaming of a white Christmas, we're so sorry that it looks like that isn't going to happen. It's times like these we take comfort in looking at old-time photos. We found a white Christmas! Entitled, "Warren's Christmas tree farm buildings in winter," this photo of a snow covered farmstead is our little gift to you.

For more photos, remember, JoCoHistory is the place to time travel through local history. Happy holidays!
