65th Anniversary Dinner!

Tonight the Museum is celebrating our 65th anniversary with a dinner and speaker. Doug Lucas from The Timken Company will discuss Wind Energy -- a timely topic for us with the installation of our wind turbine a few months ago, and the opening of Green Revolution in the Keller Gallery in a few weeks!

We have come so far since our humble beginnings in 1946! Back then, we didn't have a building or a staff. Just some history-minded people who wanted to preserve Stark County's past for the future.

In 1963 we opened our current building, which made a huge difference for our organization. Over the years, we have expanded it to add a larger library, the Street of Shops and a science wing that would later become Discover World.

And we have YOU to thank!

This community has been so wonderful to our Museum over the years. You come to our events, buy memberships, and donate your time, talents, money and precious heirlooms to us. We couldn't be more proud of what we do as we mark this important occasion!

Even after 65 years, we still have a lot more planned for you. Exhibits, events, programs and much, much more.

Here's to another 65 years!!
