States Historical Society administrator Rachel Barber, ” We hope that many local residents will stop by and visit several of these sites on Sunday, making an afternoon of learning more about our county’s history from our many museums. We so appreciate the collaboration of many of our village historical societies in making history more readily available to our residents and guests alike.”
Sunday’s event will also include the Smithsonian Institution’s Journey Stories poster exhibit-about the settlement of America– at the Mooney Museum, from the county Historical Society’s IN MOTION program.
Auglaize County: IN MOTION is the heritage tourism initiative based upon the themes of motion, movement, and transportation reflected in so much Auglaize County history. IN MOTION projects have been funded on three separate occasions by the Ohio Humanities Council; the county Historical Society is in the midst of a $25,000+ expansion of the initiative. Among other projects, this third grant will allow the historic sites and museums to incorporate QR codes and other technology to encourage heritage tourism and inform visitors.
Founded in 1963, the Auglaize County Historical Society collects, preserves, interprets, and shares the history of Auglaize County, enriching lives by connecting people and communities to the past and to each other.
