Last December, John and Pat Hendel, the owners of the house on Ellis Avenue in Maplewood known for its Christmas lights display (for almost 30 years) said that would be the last year. They said they were moving.
It hasn’t been confirmed yet that they no longer live there, but so far no lights are up.
Below is the house and the Hendels in 2017.
Also in December 2017 the Hendels shared copies of an article about their house published in 1979 and a photo from long before that.
