Jr. Historians spend three mornings learning more about the history of Wyandot County and the Native Americans that lived here. They also heard from a man who grew up on a reservation, created their own versions of Indian games, and sampled some snacks that were similar to those an Indian child might have had.
On May 7, a soft opening and ribbon cutting was held at the Indian Mill. The Mill has been up graded with new paint, new lighting, and many new displays! The opening was attended by the Wyandot Chiefs, Historical Society board members and the Director, as well as several state officials. Look for the Grand Opening in July!
The May 6th dinner, hosted by the Wyandot County Historical Society and the Records and History of John Stewart United Methodist Church, was an enjoyable evening. With good food, provided by Special Occasions, the evening was highlighted by a program presented by Chief Roll of the Wyandots of Anderdon (Michigan) and Chief Friend of the Wyandottes from Oklahoma. Following the dinner and presentation, many of the guests were able to personally meet the Chiefs.
It was a beautiful day for the dedication! In attendance were several state representatives of the Historical Connection, as well as Wyandot Chief Friend of the Oklahoma Wyandots and Chief Role of the Michigan Wyandots. There were also several displays to enjoy. In the mill, visitors could enjoy the model of an operating mill, several displays relating the history of the bridge and the mill and a view of the wheel once operated by the waters of the Sandusky River.
Hat Day at the Museum was an interesting and fun day. Many antique hats were on display for the visitors to see and even try on. One group of visitors was a club of the Red Hat Society, many modeling their own red and purple hats.
What a beautiful day it was for this year’s Ice Cream Social. Many people came and enjoyed the food, the music, a carriage ride, and a visit with old and new friends! A big thank you goes out to the sponsors , the many bakers, the Alumni band, and all who helped make this an enjoyable and successful event!
