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 Village is
on permanent display here in Avon, and is open for all to enjoy during the holiday season.
Whether you’re reliving your youth or starting a new family tradition, Jordan’s hopes your
holidays are as enchanting as the Enchanted Village.
