By Eleanor O’Donnell
The Antioch Historical Society will host their final Summer Open Evening at the museum on Wednesday, August 21, 2013. We will feature a Vintage Car Show and an old fashioned Ice Cream Social, demonstrations of making ice cream in old fashion crank type ice cream maker.
The museum will be open from 1:00 – 4:00 pm and 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Admission is free.
We have had a nice turn out for the open house and have entertained many children with contests and snacks. Our goal has been to acquaint people with the museum and the history of the area. We have more people living in Antioch and area now than ever before. The museum welcomes everyone and hopes to show the history of Antioch and people who were here before us.
The museum has been adding some improvements, a new wrought iron fence at the front of the drive-way, new lighting in front of the building and new carpet in the hallway and Riverview Room. All provided by generous donations to the museum and fund raising efforts.
The museum is located at the corner of 1500 West 4th Street at the curve from Auto Center Drive.
