In the 1982 fire at Coleman's Nursery amazingly the nativity was undamaged!
It had it's own wooden shed outside, first thing you saw.
When you saw the lights on it lit you knew Coleman's was ready for Christmas visitors.
It is not part of the Coleman Collection now.
Because the nativity scene can not be displayed on public property.
So Monumental United Methodist Church bought it and lovingly refurbished the figures .
Had a special manger scene built to display it in the small chapel.
The camel is so sweet looking and he moves his head.
It amazes me that so many other Christmas decorations can be displayed in public/government places but yet this has to be a block away tucked inside a small chapel!
This concludes my sharing of the Coleman Collection.
Hope you enjoyed seeing it!! ;-)
