​Collection Updates:
HAWKINS ROCKERS. Thanks to member Sandy Graham we have acquired two rocking chairs originally owned by the Hawkins family when they lived in the stone house on State Route 28, which now, of course, is our museum. It was the Hawkins family who christened the house The Anchorage.

RESTORED! The battle flag for Company "C" 2nd Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, the Goshen Company during the Civil War. Thank you to Jim Poe and family for undertaking this restoration effort. The flag is currently on display in the GTHS Museum.
