| November 2, 2017

COSHOCTON – The Roscoe Village Foundation’s Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Buerglener as our new executive director. Buerglener will represent the Roscoe Village Foundation and manage the organization in all capacities, and he will also serve as the main public contact and spokesperson.

Originally from Akron, Buerglener comes to us from Chicago. His career spans both the museum world and teaching.  Most recently, he served in a leadership role in At Home in Chicago, a coalition of historic house museums, where he created public programs and outreach strategies for the group. Buerglener holds a Ph.D. in history, focusing especially on transportation, technology, and architecture, all subjects vital to the mission and programs of the Roscoe Village Foundation.

“This is a time of exciting changes at Roscoe Village as we approach our 50th anniversary in 2019,” said Ann Simpson, President of the Roscoe Village Foundation Board of Trustees. “After considering many talented candidates, we chose Robert for his breadth of experience in museums and education. He brings the background and approach we need to expand our programs and build new connections here in the region and beyond.”

Buerglener officially joined us just in time for our 48th Annual Apple Butter Stirrin.’ He feels honored to have been chosen and excited to work with everyone here.

“Roscoe Village is really a hidden gem, whether you’re interested in history, crafts, gardens, or architecture,” Buerglener said. “I hope that everyone has a chance to visit here and experience our shared cultural heritage.”

Please join the staff and Board of Trustees in welcoming Robert to Roscoe Village and Coshocton. We look forward to introducing him to the community as Historic Roscoe Village celebrates 48 years of presenting and interpreting the history of Ohio’s canal era.
