Christmas cards of Bay Village notables

The cover of President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan’s official Christmas card, 1988. Art by Thomas William Jones.

During Cahoon Christmas 2023 events, the Bay Village Historical Society is showcasing an exhibit of Christmas cards and imagery in our library. The pictures were created by artist Thomas William Jones, a Bay Village native.

Jones recently and very generously donated examples of his work to the Society this year. Jones’s work was chosen as the feature image for President Ronald Reagan and Vice President Dick Cheney’s official Christmas cards. 

You may view the art in person at Rose Hill Museum during the final Cahoon Christmas event day on Wednesday, Dec. 20, from 4-7 p.m. You may find a list of special performances and demonstrations for this day our website at 

Jones’s cards inspired us to look at some other holiday greetings in our collections. Enjoy this look into the past and happy holidays from the Bay Village Historical Society!
