Mary Ann Olding to Speak at The Versailles Area Museum

On Sunday May 7th at 2 o’clock, well known world traveler, historian and researcher Mary Ann Olding will present a Power Point Program at the Versailles Area Museum.

The program will focus on the historic photographs, landscape, American, French and German cemeteries, architecture, WWI and WWII history, present-day stores, homes, relatives, eco museum and mid-twentieth century aerial views of the villages of the Meuse River Valley.

The Meuse River Valley was the border between the French and German armies in both wars. Many families from this area came to the U. S. and settled in the Frenchtown, Versailles, and Russia area.

Mary Ann will also be sharing photos, historic postcards, maps, histories, scenes from Hannonville-sous Les Cotes, Combres-sous les Cotes and St Maurice-sous les Cotes from her many trips taken during the last 35 years.

Make plans to join us at the Museum for this special presentation. The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
