August 10: Liar's Club

Enjoy an evening with the Liar’s Club. Using artifacts from the museum's collection, a panel of three will take turns spinning a story about an artifact--or telling the truth about what it is. After the panelists and the moderator banter back and forth in a friendly manner, the audience will vote on which panelist is telling the truth. The evening will be filled with laughter and learning. Refreshments will be served following the program.

Cost: $3 per person ($2 per person for members)

August 20, 2016: 1840's Whig Rally

Research suggests that Senator Thomas Morris, investor in the mills, lived in Elk Lick House in the early 1840s.  Morris, a staunch opponent of slavery, ran for Vice President on the Liberty Party ticket in 1844. 

Heritage Village will host an 1840’s political rally on Saturday, August 20. Come and take part—and find out what political issues held the attention of this country before the Civil War.
