Sycamore School, circa 1900. Later opened as the first home for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum May 8, 1931.

COSHOCTON – The 1930s and 40s, the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, will be Jan. 10 at noon. The 1930s and 40s saw a lot of change for Coshocton. Citizens witnessed William Green paving the way for miners’ rights as the president of the American Federation of Labor. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum opened its doors for the first time at its original Sycamore Street location. All the while, the Great Depression and WWII hit Coshoctonians on all fronts. Come share your memories with us during this hour-long discussion. Always a great conversation!

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.

February’s topic is “Sweet Shops and Bakeries.” 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 January through February Noon – 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
