Prized Possessions special exhibit coming up

| April 20, 2014

COSHOCTON – A treasure is any thing or person greatly valued or highly prized. Often it is a precious because of its connection to a special person or place so the story itself is more valuable than the actual object. A new exhibit at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum will feature personal treasures and their stories contributed by Coshocton residents. Prized Possessions will also include rarely seen pieces from JHM’s collections, perhaps better described as its hidden treasures. The exhibit promises to be as original, quirky and diverse as the people around us. Brass knuckles, carved ivory, crystals, an Indian grinding stone, African souvenirs, artwork and childhood toys are just some of the personal items that will be displayed. Prized Possessions runs from April 26 through May 25 and is sponsored by the Mary

Taylor Family.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is open daily from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday in April and noon to 5 p.m. beginning May 1. In addition to its special exhibits, the museum’s permanent collections are displayed in three galleries: Historic Ohio, American Indian and Asian. A Civil War display can also be viewed in a fifth gallery. JHM is located in Historic Roscoe Village, a restored canal-era town sited along the former Ohio & Erie Canal, at 300 N. Whitewoman St. For information, contact JHM at 622-8710, e-mail: [email protected]org or visit www.jhmuseum.org.
