COSHOCTON -- Beauty Parlors and Barbershops, the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum's Our Town Stories, takes place Sept. 14th.

Where were local beauty parlors and barbershops located and who owned them? Did you frequent a certain parlor growing up? Beauty parlors and barbershops were once an important social hub for suburban housewives and the working man. Come share your memories during this hour-long discussion.

JHM's Our Town Stories gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday at 12 noon.

The conversation animates "the old days" as we conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not.

The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring your sandwich and make the most of your lunch break.

October's topic is "Hobbies."
