COSHOCTON – Special ancestors, the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, will be June 14. Can you trace your bloodline back to the Mayflower Pilgrims, Charlemagne or Genghis Khan? Perhaps your ancestor was a founding settler of Coshocton County, or an infamous criminal who changed the course of history. Family genealogy can unfold many interesting tales, and we’d like you to share your story of a fascinating member of your family tree 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.

July’s topic is “World War II.” 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 to the public daily noon – 5 p.m.
