Take a step back in time on Sunday, July 21 for the monthly Open House at the Smithville Community Historical Society. The Pioneer Village and Mishler Weaving Mill will be open from 1:30 to 4 P.M. The Smithville Stars will play the Mansfield Independent at 2 P.M. on the greens of the old school house across from the Church of God.
At 3:30 P.M. the Orrivlle Community Band will present their annual summer
concert with music from the Sosa era to current Broadway Musicals. Following the concert, we will hold our Ice Cream Social. Donations are welcomed to go towards the cost of repairs to the Church of God.
Norma Trotter, Barb Mast and friends will be providing music in the Pioneer Village.
In the Downey Pioneer Visitor Center, we pay tribute to Sayer’s Market Place which was formerly Sayer’s IGA with a display on the first floor. On the second floor a wonderful collection of both ladies and men’s hats are on display with some that you can try on.
Craftsmen will be presenting their trades in the various buildings and our ladies will be at their looms in the Mishler Weaving Mill. Please visit the Model-T Museum and see their latest additions to their collection. Bring your chairs and blankets for an enjoyable afternoon for the whole family, set back and relax.
