Harvesting the history of Canal Winchester’s deep agriculture roots, the Canal Winchester Area Historical Society invites you and your family to fall in love with the olden times through opportunities in October.
The Canal Winchester Area Historical Society is sponsoring a one-day event celebrating Founder’s Day at the iconic Historical Complex, located at 10 W. Oak St., home to the Queen of the Line train depot, the Prentiss Schoolhouse, and the O.P. Chaney Grain Elevator. The family-friendly event takes place on Saturday, October 15th from 9 AM to 3 PM. Take a glimpse at Canal Winchester as it was in times gone by… meet the weaver, the baker, the candle maker, and others. No entry charge for this event. There will be goods available for purchase and games available for play.
On October 21st and 22nd, the Historical Society, in partnership with Canal Winchester High School Performing Arts, will bring history to life for the sixteenth annual Historic Ghost Tour. Event-goers will be guided through a short walking tour as they are entertained by actors depicting people from Canal Winchester’s past. Tours will last approximately 90 minutes and will begin at 7 PM each night, with the last tour departing at 7:30 PM. All tours will depart from the Canal Winchester Historical Complex at 10 W. Oak Street. Tickets will be available each evening beginning at 6:30 PM, or anytime online for pick up at will call (0.25 cent transaction fee). Tickets are offered at $10 per adult and $5 per student aged 6-18; children 5 and under will be free. Please leave pets at home.
Proceeds from all of these events help support the Canal Winchester Area Historical Society's core programs and preservation projects. For more information, visit cwhistory.org.
