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)
 

Aug 13 through Sept 11: "In Singular Focus" Art Show & Sale

Over 30 local and regional artists showcase works in this unique ‘snippets-style’ art show and sale, opening August 13, 2-5 PM.

The exhibit is free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM; and Sunday 1:00-5:00 PM. (See the top of this page for times and fees for tours of our 19th-century village while you are here.) To enter Sharon Woods, visitors will need a Hamilton County park pass, available at the gate for a price of $3 per day or $10 for the year.

A portion of the sale of artworks will be retained and split jointly between the Heritage Village and GMAHS, both non-profit organizations that depend on fundraising to help sustain their community programming.

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.

 

December 10, 2016: Breakfast with Father Christmas

Step back in time and enjoy pancakes, story time, and the chance to meet Father Christmas. Remember what Christmas was like before batteries and shopping mall madness—even if just for one morning.  (Details available when we get closer to the date.)
