Page Family

Marilyn and her husband, Jim Page, have lived in the home along 416 since their marriage in 1972. The home was destroyed by fire and a new home was constructed on the site. The Pages have three sons, Shane, Matt and Tim, all of Tuscarawas. The home gets a lot of attention during the Christmas holiday as it has one of the largest light displays in the county. It features thousands of lights and handmade cartoon characters. Marilyn noted that their current driveway was a part of the old road (later Rt. 16 and 416) that went through Goshen.

  1. I am engaged to their oldest son, Shane. We have 2 children, Mitchell, 13 and Brayden, 6. Jim has passed down the enjoyment of putting out the Christmas display to his sons, and now our children. It’s a family affair. Our children enjoy telling everyone they come in contact with about the Christmas display and love watching children’s faces glow when they turn off of 416 onto Goshen Valley Rd. We add to the display 30-40 new items every year. We recently purchased a Winnie the Pooh from 1977, which brought Shane to tears. It was the very first blowmold his father bought for him, which was lost in the house fire. We also purchased 3 lanterns, a white, red and green, that were used in small towns 50 years ago. Each and every blowmold has a story behind it, with most of them being vintage.

    We invite you to stop by through Jan 1, 6-9pm and enjoy the Christmas display we have.

  2. Thurl and Elsie Starcher moved to Goshen in 1947 after Thurl, a gunsmith, went to work for Sam Bond Gun Shop, near New Philadelphia. Their house was formerly the canal lockkeeper’s house, but had been moved from its original location. The couple had two children, Lyndell and Marilyn.
