ORDER YOUR TICKETS NOW “See It, Save It, Preserve It!

The Versailles Area Historical Society will be taking part in this year’s annual National Historic Preservation Month celebration with their “What was up There?” tour of five fascinating buildings that give history of what was on the second and in one case third floors in downtown Versailles.

The tour will be hosted on Saturday May 4, 2013. Groups will gather rain or shine in the village square with one group leaving at 12:00 p.m. and the second group at 3:00 p.m. each lasting about two hours. Light refreshments will be served in the Masonic Dining Room and a question and answer session will be held.

Cost is $8.00 for Versailles Area Historical Society members and $10.00 for non-members. Guests will have guided tours of five historic buildings including the Marker Building, now the home of Living Waters Ministry the La Moine Hall (former home of The Versailles Policy), the Opera House (above Tom Magoto’s State Farm), the Knights of Columbus Hall, the 1st Library, the old telephone switch board, (all above the Floor Store & More and House of Flowers) and the Versailles Masonic Lodge (located above Nancy O’s).

For tickets you may make reservations by calling the museum answering machine at 937-526-4222 and leave your name if you are a member, how many tickets and if you want tour one or two. We look forward to hosting you “Upstairs”.
