Johnson-Humrickhouse Home celebrating 180th anniversary

| May 10, 2016

COSHOCTON – This year marks the 180th birthday of the Johnson-Humrickhouse Home. The Pomerene Center for the Arts has occupied this glorious mansion since 1984. Built in 1836 by George Silliman and his wife Anna Johnson, this home has stood for more than a century as one of the premier examples of Greek Revival architecture in the state of Ohio. Many have come and gone, but the stories and memories remain.

The Pomerene Center for the Arts wants to hear the stories you have collected about the house and those who lived and visited here. Their goal is to bring light to them at the opening of a summer exhibit and gala dinner celebrating the house and its history. More details will be revealed in the coming months regarding the opening date and time of this exhibit and dinner as the center is just in the collecting and planning phase.

All proceeds of this exhibit and dinner will benefit The Pomerene Center for the Arts and will be used toward historical and architectural preservation efforts of the home.
