“It started to snow and I entered a magical looking main street much like the one in Bedford Falls in the film ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’ It was stunningly beautiful and I felt so at home here. And then . . . there it was . . . the bridge. I have returned to the community of Seneca Falls every year since 2002. There is a festival celebrating this beloved Christmas film every December. Every time I come back, I feel like I am coming home.
“I played the part of little Zuzu in the movie and my mother saved quite a few items from my time on the set. As the years have gone by and my collection of memorabilia has grown, I wanted to share it with the fans of the film. From donations and lots of heart and hard work, our dream happened because of faith. If we open it . . . they will come. The Museum opened in 2010 and now has more than 200 items from my collection on display. Several fans are also exhibiting their precious items associated with the film. The Museum is a place to come and perhaps have a look into the genius of Frank Capra and have an experience that you too will always keep in your heart.”
