Our Town Stories to focus on taverns and bars

| August 11, 2014

COSHOCTON -The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories topic for Thursday, Aug. 14 is taverns and bars. What were their names and where were they located? Would a particular bar appeal to a specific group of people? Were there “men only” or “women only” bars? Did any have a gambling sideline? Which ones had pool tables? Come to the museum to share what you know or just listen to the stories from years gone by. Always a good time and a source of fun facts not found in your local history books.

JHM’s Our Town Stories is an informal conversation about life in Coshocton County in “the old days.” All are invited to join in. The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Whether you’re old or young, a Coshocton resident or not, you’ll enjoy this hour-long program.

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.

September’s topic is butchering and food preparation. 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.
