Ice Cream Socials and Bazaars, the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, takes place at noon Aug 8. Churches in Coshocton were once the social hub of the community, bringing together people both young and old not only through worship together but through fellowship and fundraisers. One popular tradition was the ice cream social, an institution which dates back to the 1860s. Come share your memories with us during our hour-long discussion.
JHM’s Our Town Stories gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month. 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.
