Garst Museum is Celebrating National Preservation Month

May is National Preservation Month. Sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the theme this year is “Celebrating America’s Treasures.”

At the local level, Darke County will be joining communities across the country commemorating their own unique heritage. Darke County’s “Celebrating Our Local Treasures” includes events throughout the month and offers the community ways to support and recognize our diverse history and built environment.

In honor of Darke County’s “Celebrating Our Local Treasures” National Historic Preservation Month event, the Lowell Thomas House will be open from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm each Saturday during May. The Lowell Thomas House is currently being repainted thanks to a generous donation from Kay Brown. Stop by and see the progress!

Admission to the Lowell Thomas House is free through the double glass doors located next to the parking lot. Regular admission prices apply to tour the museum.

A special joint membership deal for Historic Preservation Month is also offered during May. Partnering together for the places that matter are Bear's Mill, Main Street Greenville, and Garst Museum (Darke County Historical Society). Your support will allow all three organizations to continue their mission to ensure that our local treasures remain intact and celebrated for years to come. The special membership package includes an individual membership to each organization for a year at a discounted price of $50. This offer is for new members only.

Stop by Garst Museum or Bear's Mill or visit to support our treasures today!

The Garst Museum is located at:
205 N. Broadway, Greenville, OH 45331
