Living History Open House: 1850s & WWII

Step back in time to the 1850s and World War II. Tour the restored Greek revival house circa 1854 and learn more about the Powers and Walker families that called this area home. Volunteers in historical attire will be on hand to answer questions, offer tours and demonstrate skills appropriate to the season.

There will be several special presentations during the event focusing on the history of the house, its residents and the region during World War II. Remembrances of the Schaefer and Steinmetz families, who resided in the house during this era in time, including copies of old family photos, will be featured at about 2 p.m.

The Program is free and registration is not required for this drop-in event.
