Ticket sales continue to rise for the historic John and Annie Glenn site. After only two months in business, the senator and astronaut's boyhood home has seen over 1,000 visitors. Lorle Porter, assistant director of museum, said that the museum is very happy with the unexpected numbers of visitors. People from 34 states as well as other countries have visited. Porter said she was especially pleased that many of the visitors include family members from several generations, as one of the main goals for the center is to teach children the recent American history that perhaps their grandparents lived through. The John Glenn boyhood home is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10-3, and on Sunday from 1-4.
