VAHS Museum now open

VERSAILLES - What are you doing on Sunday afternoon? The Versailles Area Historical Society’s Museum is open each Sunday afternoon from 1 p.m. till 4 p.m. for your convenience. Our autumn displays are up and ready for your enjoyment. You’ll want to be sure to visit the North Star Room as well as our Willowdell and Webster displays.

Mark your calendars as plans are underway for a special Veteran’s Tribute on Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. a program you won’t want to miss. Also are “Sunday Afternoon’s at the Museum” speaker series will return in January for our third season. This is a great way to spend an afternoon.

Also the museum is happy to arrange special tours for groups at other times during the week by calling the museum at 526-4222 and leave a detailed message. We are also now taking school groups especially 3rd grade and up. Our tours can be prepared to match the Ohio Standards for Social Studies with a local spin on our history to meet any teacher’s needs.

Whether you’re a student or haven’t seen the inside of a classroom in many a year the museum has so much to offer and so many wonderful stories to tell.

With advanced planning special demonstrations and interpreters can be arranged to enhance your museum experience. From learning about the first families to settle the community, to the towns devastating fire, to the stories of soldiers who served our country, to Annie Oakley, one of our most famous residents, we can share the tales you won’t forget.

So come and spend the afternoon with us or perhaps make plans to bring a group to enjoy the treasures of our past as well as the stories of our communities at the museum in Versailles.

The museum is located at the corner of West Street and St. Rt. 121. We are handicapped accessible.
