In 1957, Chandler resident Earle Barnum spearheaded construction of cotton-boll wreaths and a tree made from tumbleweeds to decorate downtown Chandler during the Christmas season. The Tumbleweed Tree has since become a long-standing holiday season tradition. This exhibition showcases photographs, postcards, and memories from the 60+ year history of the tree. See how the construction of the tree has developed over the years, revel in some of the national attention this tree has garnered over the years, and share your memories of this festive Chandler tradition.
