“On the Road Again”

Coming in May the Versailles Area Museum will once again plan to take our first Road Trip of 2018.

This trip will be on Tuesday May 15th, leaving our Museum parking lot at 8:15 a.m. with a return time of 4:30 p.m. planned.

Our trip will take us across the fresh green fields traveling east to Springfield, Ohio and their fabulous Heritage Center Museum. This museum which is housed in a wonderful historic building with the unique architectural style referred to as Richardsonian Romanesque. The building which is in the heart of downtown Springfield that literally takes up an entire city block!

The museum showcases the building of the National Road (Route 40) and the pioneers who settled what would become Clark County and really the America’s heartland.

Of-course lunch is always fun and as good French or German decedents we never miss the opportunity for a great meal and fellowship along with our history!

Lunch this trip will be at the Heart of Country Teaberries in Springfield. This converted school house has been turned into a charming country gift shop and wonderful lunch spot.

After a refreshing lunch, perhaps a visit to one of the many Springfield Antique shops to end our day?

The cost for the day is a gratuity to your driver, a donation at the museum, and the cost of your lunch.

If you plan to attend and or wish to drive, please let the Museum know by calling 937-526-4222 to make reservations no later than May 11th.
