AWTHS open First Saturdays

ARCANUM--The Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society will have visiting hours Dec. 1, 9 a.m. to noon. The historical property and house is located at 123 West George St. in Arcanum.

A new display is on loan from Bob Weisenbarger, which contains posters and maps from the Korean Conflict. The research library will be open. New histories include the Johannes Fourman and Stager families donated by Melody Fox.

Detailed information from the recent Preservation Methods and Storage of Heirlooms program, which includes photos, albums, paper materials, and documents, is available. The staff will be available to help with research, organizing and documenting a family history or story.

For those veterans who wish to record their experience or assist with this task, please see this interesting web site at This is about a young man, Kyle Miller who is doing an Eagle Scout Project to record stories of Veterans. He intends to interview 1,000 Veterans of World War II and the Korean War and post their stories on his website, “Voices from the Front.”

The Historical Society is open the First Saturday of every month or by appointment. Please see the web site for current updates and information at
