Enchanted Village and Polar Express at Jordan’s Furniture in Avon MA

The Enchanted Village will open for the  2017 Christmas  Holiday season on November 18th

As a child I remember going to the Enchanted Village in Jordan Marsh during the 1970s, taking the train in and spending such a magical day during the Christmas season.  Now you are able to share this with your own children at the Jordan’s furniture store in Avon plus there is also a magical 4D ride on the Polar Express!    Enchanted Village and Polar Express at Jordan's Furniture in Avon MA

Once, called the Enchanted Village of St. Nicholas, the holiday display was originally created in 1958. At that time, Jordan Marsh Company commissioned a Bavarian toy maker to create 28 fully decorated holiday scenes with 250 “magically” animated figures.

Throughout the 1960s and into the 1970s, Jordan Marsh displayed the Enchanted Village in its Downtown Crossing store. The heart-warming display quickly became an integral part of New England’s seasonal celebrations. Until 1972, when Jordan Marsh closed the display, a trip to The Village was a traditional event.

The Enchanted Village remained closed from 1972 until its rebirth in 1990. Then, in 1998, when Macy’s purchased Jordan Marsh, the Village was sold to the City of Boston for a City Hall Plaza display. In 2003, a lack of funding forced the Village to move to the Hynes Convention Center. By 2006, Boston stopped displaying The Village altogether. In 2009, the Village was put up for auction.

Jordan’s Furniture purchased the surviving pieces of the Enchanted Village at auction in May of 2009 and restored the vintage collection to its former glory. The surviving collection includes 59 mechanical figurines and 18 vignettes. The Village is on permanent display in Avon, and is open for all to enjoy during the holiday season.
