Will Johnny Come Marching Home? 1865 At The Fulton County Museum

IMG_0558.JPG(WAUSEON,OH) — The Fulton County Historical Society will be hosting first-person theatrical live storytellers at the Fulton County Museum on Saturday, May 16, 2015.

This event is a part of their Hell & Homefront initiative which highlights the Civil War through Fulton County eyes.

The front porch of the museum will be transformed into the front porch of Marie Hibbard, of Spring Hill (Tedrow), and each visitor to this event will receive a Fulton County family identity. Now that the war is over and the president slain, guests will find out if their soldier “Johnny” is marching home or not and learn details about Lincoln’s funeral train. Groups of 2-8 may reserve seats between noon-3pm. Enjoy complimentary Afternoon Tea (sandwiches, scones, desserts, and a choice of hot tea or pink lemonade).

$10 member and $12.50 non-member tickets.

Guests will also be able to see the new temporary exhibit which features events of 1865 inside the museum. The Fulton County Museum is now open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10:00am – 4:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Members FREE. Adults, $4, Seniors, $3, and Students $2.

To reserve a seat, contact the Historical Society at (419)337-7922 or email museum@fultoncountyhs.org.
