NEWCOMERSTOWN — The Olde Main Street Museum will present a true trip down "Memory Lane" on August 2-3 as Chris Hart and Ray McFadden present "The Last Customer" on two successive nights.
Set in 1967 at the Post House on Old Route 21 in Newcomerstown, the short order cook is played by living historian Chris Hart and his last customer before closing of the establishment is played by living historian Ray McFadden. The two reminisce about how State Route 21 affected the lives of those living in the area and express concern about how the coming Interstate will affect the community. They look back at the many families and generations who used the road to come to the area seeking a better way of life during WWII and the post-war period.
The discussion leads to many of the old timers and the well repeated education they received on the three r's, reading, 'ritin and Route 21. Jokes abound among those who made the journey from West Virginia and points south.
Tickets are $20 and include dinner consisting of roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, pie and a drink. Tickets can be purchased at the museum during regular hours at the box office located at 213 West Canal Street in Newcomerstown. Call the museum at 740-498-7735 for more info.
