Bringing Christmas Cheer Since 1948
William M. Koziar, the creator of Christmas Village, began decorating his home and property in 1948 for the pleasure that he and his wife, Grace, and their four children derived from the unusual display. People appreciated and applauded the beauty of the Koziar's home and began to refer to it as the "The Christmas House."
Mr. Koziar added new and unique items and lighted displays to the original layout each year. He began decorating the lake, walkways, trees, fences, and buildings, as well as continually adding to the barn and house.
By popular demand, visitors were granted access to the premises for a closer look. Thus, “The Christmas House” became known as “Koziar’s Christmas Village.” The word spread and people came from near and far to see the breathtaking lights.
Today Koziar’s Christmas Village has grown to a regional and national phenomena with third and fourth generation’s of families making the magical trek to view the stunning lights.
National media outlets, like the Today Show, have featured what has become a Pennsylvania treasure.
