The community of Southeast Ohio came out to enjoy Zane Grey Family Day Sunday.

The National Road and Zane Grey Museum hosted the 4th annual event. Educational Director of the museum, Joanna Duncin says those who attended got to enjoy Zane Grey’s favorite things.

“He enjoyed fishing so we have a fishing event. He enjoyed hunting, he enjoyed cooking out over the open fire so we have some dutch oven cookers here today. He loved baseball, so we have some baseball players.”

In that game, the Ohio Village Muffins took on the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Department at 2PM. The Wilds also brought some furry friends. Duncin says the celebration is always well loved by all.

“Everybody has enjoyed this event and this year we had people on the grounds at 11:30AM–11 o’clock actually and we don’t start until 12PM so we know its something people look forward to each year.”

The event was free but donations were accepted. The costs went back into the museum to help fund educational programming. It ran from 12PM to 4PM and Duncin said anywhere between 400 and 500 people were estimated to attended.
