GMAHS will present the 2018 Community History Brown Bag Lunch Series starting in April. All programs are free and open to the public, but GMAHS would greatly appreciation a small donation if you enjoy your visit. Please bring your own lunch.
Please RSVP* to 513/248-0324 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
*RSVP appreciated but not required (except for April’s session – see below). Please join us if you can.
All sessions start at Noon and conclude at approximately 1 PM:
April 12 – Little Miami Brewing Company, 208 Mill Street. What a great way to start the 2018 series! GMAHS will have the history of this Milford area, a busy manufacturing region in the early days of Milford. The group is invited to order (and pay for) lunch from the brewery’s menu. This session requires an RSVP by April 5.
May 10 – Milford Masonic Lodge #54, 32 Water Street. The Milford Masonic Lodge is one of the oldest in the state of Ohio. Lodge #54 will proudly celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2020. The current building at 32 Water Street was constructed in 1926.
June 14 – Pennsylvania Railroad Depot (now Milford Trailhead), State Route 126. The depot served Milford from 1841 until 1969; and, it is now a stop along the 76-mile Miami Scenic Trail. We will be meeting at the Bishop’s Bicycle building at the trailhead. This is a small venue with limited seating, so you may want to bring a chair. If the weather cooperates, we will meet outside; if rain arrives we’ll move into the building.
Howard Kuhnell will present train history with RR memorabilia/photos by Larry Curless. Bishop’s will also provide a spokesperson that will share history of the bicycle shop. In business since 1890!
July 12 – Promont, 906 Main Street. Promont was home of Ohio governor, John Pattison, from 1879-1906 and currently serves as home to the Greater Milford Area Historical Society. The Society will present the story of the Pattison family.
