Experience History!

"Learn about life during the Great Depression and the Home Front during WWII through a captivating living history presentation.
Astronaut/Senator John Glenn's boyhood home has been moved back to Main Street in New Concord, Ohio and restored as it was when he lived there until his enlistment in World War II.

John Glenn once said that he and his wife have lived one third of American history. It is our goal to bring to life aspects of that time, namely life during the Great Depression and on the Home Front during WWII.
