COSHOCTON – Motels and hostels, the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, takes place Sept. 13 at Noon. With a booming industrial and artistic scene, Coshocton County once provided ample places for room and board. Do you recall the different motels and hostels in which visitors, travelers and workers settled for the night? Come and share your memories during this hour-long discussion.

JHM’s Our Town Stories gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. The conversation animates “the old days” as we conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not. The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring your sandwich and make the most of your lunch break.

October’s topic is “Street Names.” For more information contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 740-622-8710 or [email protected]. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman Street, Coshocton. The museum is open daily Noon to 5 p.m. After Labor Day, the hours are Noon – 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
