Putnam Holiday Open House

Putnam Holiday Open House

by Kaitlin Busch on December 6, 2014

The Muskingum County Pioneer and Historical Society held its annual Putnam Holiday Open House today .

The Historical Society encourages everyone to come out and learn more about the history of Putnam. Five historic homes will be open for the public tomorrow, and many will feature special musical guests.

"There will be live Christmas music on the organ at the Presbyterian church tomorrow, and that’s beautiful. We had a group from the Sweet Adeline’s here with us from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m," said Nancy Ragias, a Historical Society volunteer.

The beautiful music may get you in the door, but once you’re in you’ll be immersed in Putnam history. Historian president Bob Jenkins says that knowing your past and carrying on traditions is important for the future.

"People need to know where they came from and what their past is, and what they felt was important to carry on those traditions in today’s culture."

The open house will continue tomorrow and for a complete list of all the historic homes you can tour, and open house hours visit the Muskingum County Pioneer and Historical Society’s website www.Muskingumhistory.org.
