COSHOCTON -- The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is offering a guided tour of its special exhibit, Traces of Time, Traces of Glory, on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m.
The exhibit features prehistoric tools and points that were found in Coshocton County by local residents.
Dan Brenneman, tour guide for the evening, has been collecting artifacts for 30 years. His interest began at about age 10 after his family moved to a house at Sycamore and Third Streets, right across from the Sycamore school building where the museum was located. The artifact display fascinated him. One day he asked a boy at school how you went about finding Indian relics and the boy told him. That began his lifelong avocation of studying and collecting artifacts.
Program participants can expect to move from case to case as Brenneman points out the outstanding pieces. His knowledge of the artifacts and ability to communicate this knowledge will make for a fascinating evening. The tour cost is included in the price of the museum's general admission: $3 for adults and $2 for students.
Traces of Time, Traces of Glory: Native American Prehistoric Tools and Points is on display through Dec. 30. Exhibit sponsors are Organic Technologies and Three Rivers Therapy. The museum is open from 1 to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
