Museum gets ready for holiday

Published 10:11 pm Saturday, October 24, 2009

Wednesday, Oct. 21, was “Apple Butter Day” at the Lawrence County Historical Museum. If you have reserved apple butter stop by and pick it up. The museum is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Sorry to say there are no more available reservations for the Christmas Tea at Nov. 14.

Christmas decorations are starting to appear at the museum. It is always very pretty and something you do not want to miss. Each room is appointed to someone to decorate. The museum is closed to the public but will re-open Nov. 1.

We are planning a special program for each Christmas Sunday. If you miss this, you will really be missing something different and new.

A special thank you to Leibert Corp for the gift they gave the society.

While traveling in Ironton today, I noticed the beautiful trees and flowers, especially on Fifth and Sixth streets. Ironton is a pretty town.

While continuing last week’s historical information about Lawrence County people buried in Cincinnati, we will go ahead and list some who have been buried in Spring Grove Cemetery.
