Join us for a night where history comes alive at the museum!
You can meet historical figures from the New Boston Fair, the George Rogers Clark Heritage Association, and the Clark County Historical Society during an entertaining evening of music, dancing, and living history!
Ladies in hoop skirts will mix with farmers from the 1920’s as the stories of Clark County will be told by those who used the artifacts in the museum in their real life. The Shawnee will tell about their lives in this area. Shoppers will walk the streets of 1940’s Springfield. Chickens will hatch again in the Buckeye Incubator. The Battle of Peckuwe will be remembered by Col. Clark and Chief Black Hoof. Dancers will grace the entry hall. The infamous Fair at New Boston “Ratcatcher” will make sure that no “vermin” will bother visitors.
