Santa Claus Comes to Brownhelm Twp – 1963

Tonight, just as he has since 1932, Santa Claus will literally visit every home in Brownhelm Township, keeping the township's Community Christmas tradition alive, and bringing smiles to the faces of all residents, especially the children.

This article (above), which appeared in The Lorain Journal in late November 1963, explains the whole heartwarming story. It tells how Rev. Ralph Albright and a small group of citizens had the idea of a Community Christmas in which St. Nick would visit every household to make sure that no child would go without a gift.

The tradition continues today and is a wonderful thing indeed. It's enough to make you want to move to Brownhelm Township just to be part of it! But even without Santa, the township's friendly citizens, natural beauty, rural flavor and fascinating history as one of the area's oldest settlements make it a great place to live.
