Museum's 2016 Season is Over
The Gardner House Museum ended the 2016 tour season on Sunday, September 25. What this actually means is that our volunteers won't be there on weekends waiting to give tours. If, however, you would like to tour the museum, simply call 517-629-5100 to schedule a personal tour. The museum will be open again in 2017 from 2-4 p.m. Mothers' Day weekend until the last weekend of September.
Albion Historical Society Speaker Series: History of Bohm More Than First Dates and Purple Gang
The third installment of the Albion Historical Society's Speakers Series will be presented by Executive Director Nancy Doyal on Wednesday, March 15, 2017, at 6 pm in the Naomi Lane meeting room at the Albion District Library.
George Bohm first opened the Bohm Theatre on Christmas Day in 1929. The theatre provided entertainment from the days of the Purple Gang through World War II years and beyond. The theatre went through a series of owners in rapid succession during the 1990s and came to a bumpy halt in 2008. In 2011 the Friends of the Bohm Theatre was formed and purchased the theatre with the goal of restoring it. The newly restored Bohm Theatre opened in October 2014 and received the Governor's Award for Historic Preservation in May of 2015.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jennifer Wood in the History Room at the Albion District Library at 517-629-3993.
