“Sundays at the Museum Series” Continues at Versailles Historical Society’s Museum

This wonderful lecture series is more a chance to meet, greet, and to be entertained than a true “Lecture Series”.

Now in this our third season we once again are brining a unique group of interesting characters together to fascinate, educate and to enjoy.

On February 10th at 2:00 p.m. local author and contributor to the PBS series “The Lincoln Train”, Scott Trostel will join us to talk about his newest book “And Through the Black Night of Terror” The Great 1913 Flood in the Northern Miami Valley.

Scott will share facts, stories and struggles that many locals may never have heard. This March will commemorate the 100th anniversary of this tragedy and your local museum wants you to know the facts of this life changing event.

Mr. Trostel will have copies of his book for sale as well as several others that he has penned including the impressive “The Lincoln Train”. We hope you’ll save the date and share with others this wonderful opportunity to hear Mr. Trostel speak.

Planning in April, a downtown tour of the village of Versailles in “What’s Upstairs?” is currently being in the works.

Your local Historical Society has several programs available for clubs or organizations “Story in a Bag” is something we can adapt to any age.

There is so much to look forward to, so let’s get excited for another great Series presented by your local Versailles Area Historical Society.

The Versailles area Historical Society is located at the corner of State Route 121 and West Streets in Versailles.

Remember the museum is now closed for remodeling and we will announce when we will reopen for Sundays in this publication.
