The second of Richland County’s two spring event weekends is upon us.
Last week. Mohican Wildlife Weekend wowed visitors with displays, exhibitions, and more. On May 7-8, it’s the turn of Richland County’s historical societies, preservation groups, and other past-related organizations to showcase their attractions and events during RichHistory Weekend.
RichHistory Weekend is organized by the RichHistory Alliance, which was formed as a partnership of museums and historical sites in Richland County with a mission to collaborate to discover, preserve, and share history in Richland County. Members collaborate and use their combined efforts to increase tourism and promote our history for all members of Richland County.
Plan your itinerary to visit any or all of the participating museums and sites during RichHistory Weekend. Held the first weekend in May, participating member locations offer special events and open hours both Saturday and Sunday. Past events have included: house tours, garden tours, history hikes, walking tours, museum tours, craft demonstrations, family history tutorials, history talks, plant walks, dinner theater, a night at the museum, storytelling and more.
