Bevell’s Hardware in historic Downtown Blackstone is the home of the famous Christmas Holiday Train Display. 

Featuring more than a dozen model trains traversing mountains, bridges, towns with beautifully lit houses, and a snow village - it is a spectacular dazzling display for all to see! Gaze in wonder as the locomotives pass the large circus and amusement park, ball fields, drive-in cinema, and replicas of local businesses from the past and present. It takes a complete team crew to construct this display each year.

Bevell's Hardware owner Bobby Daniels is the mastermind behind this annual extravaganza. His son Robbie constructs the display and wife Lynn, with the help of other folks, who uses their talents to construct the many scenes throughout the display. This feat takes approximately two months to have everything in place and operational by the Friday after Thanksgiving. The display is up and running until the second Sunday in January.

The hardware store is closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
