Marsh House Christmas Ornaments!


The 2014 Marsh House Christmas Ornaments are here!

These porcelain ornaments are all limited edition, and are all hand numbered. This is the 3rd ornament in the set of Lafayette’s historical Christmas ornaments. The prior two ornaments are of Gordon Hall & the Presbyterian Church. All 3 of these history filled sites were built in 1836.

These ornaments can be purchased for $15 a piece, or $40 for the set of 3 ornaments.

Get your ornaments while they last at the Walker County Welcome Center (across the street from the Marsh House) or at Debbi’s Flowers on the square.

The ornaments will also be on sale at Gordon Hall during the model railroad & village display from 6-10pm on December 5th, 13th-31st nightly.

These ornaments are a DDA project, and all ornament proceeds go back into DDA projects in your community.


Christmas Pole Banners

Option A



















The latest pole banner in the Buy-A-Banner series has been approved by Lafayette City Council. The banner pictured above will be installed on the existing banner hardware in early November, and will be taken down in early January. These banners are funded with hotel/motel tax funds as they promote the annual Christmas parade.

The Buy-A-Banner program began in 2013 with 22 business sponsored pole banners. These banners measuring 30×72 inches are 2 sided and are sold 1 banner per business at $225 per banner. A Freedom Festival banner was added in the summer of 2014 and was displayed from May 31-Aug 2. The concept of the buy-a-banner program is to promote our downtown businesses & events through a rotating banner programs, where the banners are changed out every 2 months to keep things fresh. 1 special event banner set(such as the Christmas banner) will be added annually until the rotating schedule is complete.

15 additional business banners have been ordered bringing our total to 37 business sponsored banners. Thank you for all of your support!
