CLARK COUNTY, Ind. (WDRB) -- Two local businesses are working to bring back some holiday icons that longtime Louisville residents may remember.
Inside the warehouse of the Weber Group in Clark County, there are a number of whimsical displays that go into amusement parks, museums and even zoos around the country.
The Weber Group is a local construction company that builds apartments and shopping centers. But about 40 percent of its work is constructing these entertaining figures.
The company's current project involves some of the original Christmas figures that used to be displayed in the show windows of the old Stewart's Department Store in downtown Louisville at what was then Fourth and Walnut Streets.
Those figures delighted many Louisville residents decades ago at the department store which is now a vacant building in the heart of downtown Louisville.
In a few weeks people will get a chance to see the restored mechanical figures as a new generation of kids will be able to experience some holiday magic as part of what is called Christmas at the Galt House.
"Here at the Weber Group, we have recreated actual store windows for guests at the Galt House to enjoy, bringing back those great Christmas memories," says Penny Peavler of the Weber Group.
There are three restored window displays, a Victorian scene, a Dickens Christmas, and the 12 Days of Christmas.
For Peavler the latest project is a little bit personal. "I grew up in Frankfort," she says, "and that was a big part in the late 1960's coming up to the widows of Stewart's."
The Weber Group is also upgrading the Christmas Village and Castle that was on display last year at the Galt House.
"We hope it puts everyone in the holiday spirit and brings back some of the magic of Christmas past," says Peavler.
