It’s no secret that JHM is an amazing place. It’s the place in town to...
- Learn about other cultures
- Recall and preserve our local history
- Participate in lots of educational programs—
Children’s activities such as school tours, art encounters and school art exhibits
Adult programs such as lectures, local history discussions and community presentations
What other small town enjoys such an asset—such a promoter of history, art and the local community?
Last year the museum served over 9,000 people on-site and over 500 off-site.
What kinds of things were happening?
- People came to view permanent and special exhibits such as the American Civil War: 150th Anniversary exhibit.
- Special programs were given to community organizations such as the mentoring group, America in Bloom and the Coshocton Genealogical Society.
- Children absorbed history in tours and made creative works in classes.
- Adults attended lectures on the Civil War and workshops on growing mushrooms and learning to crochet.
The museum also went out to the community, offering free craft activities during First Fridays and presenting programs offsite such as at the Coshocton Senior Center.
