Our Town Stories to focus on dairy farms, creameries and ‘the milk man’

| October 6, 2014

COSHOCTON – Dairy Farms, Creameries and “the Milk Man” is the topic of the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories discussion at noon Thursday, Oct. 9.

When you were a child was your milk delivered? Maybe you picked up a few quarts at the local farm or dairy. Was there a special place to buy ice cream? Was buttermilk a staple at your table? Share your memories about this important food industry at this informal discussion about life in “the good ol’ days.” If you aren’t old enough to recall these days, you’ll enjoy listening to others as they reconstruct life in Coshocton County 50 or more years ago.

These hour-long discussions are always interesting and amusing. There are some accomplished storytellers in our midst. It’s always a good time and a source of fun facts not found in your local history books. Our Town Stories occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. Free beverages and cookies will be provided, and admission for the program is free. This is a great way to spend your lunch hour so don’t hesitate to bring a lunch.

For information, contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 622-8710 or [email protected]. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St. Museum hours are noon to 5 p.m. daily.
