Lantern Tours at Lake County History Center

Do ghosts and spirits really haunt the former Lake County Poorhouse?

Come take a walk through the long dark corridors with nothing but a candle to illuminate the way. Escape into the past as our guides provide you with an eerie yet fun-filled adventure! You'll visit all the locations around the Lake County History Center where shadows and ghostly figures have said to have been sighted. You'll go to areas where many have reported hearing heard creepy sounds and felt unseen hands touch them. You'll hear stories of unbelievable historically documented events that have taken place in the past, including those in the infirmary and attic. And, we'll even visit the foreboding cells used in the bygone days of the Lake County Poorhouse. We will demonstrate and you may borrow "ghost hunting" equipment, such as EMF detectors and dowsing rods, while on your tour! (or bring your own equipment – paranormal activity has been documented many times on previous explorations of the LCHS)

2015 Steel Drum Concert & Ice Cream Social

Come one, come all to the Hower House's Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social, Sunday, July 12, 2015, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Bring the whole family for ice cream with all the toppings, old-fashioned lawn games, self-guided tours of the home and Carriage House, and the happy sounds of a University of Akron steel drum duo.

The Hower House, an 1871 Second Empire-Style Victorian Mansion at 60 Fir Hill, was built by industrialist John Henry and Susan Hower, on what was then the eastern edge of Akron. Three generations of Howers lived there, until long after the smoke of the downtown industries forced the other wealthy families to move "west of the smoke." The home displays their extensive collection of furnishings, decorative and fine art from their worldwide travels. The 28-room mansion, with its furnishings, was willed to the University of Akron in 1970, and is now available for tours, conferences, exhibits, receptions and more.

Event Details:

COST: The Old Fashion Ice Cream Social, a benefit for the conservation of the collections, costs $5 per person or just $10 per household.

Cost includes: self-guided tour of House and Carriage House, concert, games, and ice cream sundae.

WHERE: Hower House, 60 Fir Hill, The University of Akron.

PARKING: Free onsite parking behind the Carriage House or in nearby University lots (lots will be marked for Hower House parking).

OTHER INFO: You are welcome to bring along your lawn chair or blanket to sit on, some seating provided. Family friendly event.

Rain info: In case of rain, an alternate location will be announced. Call Hower House for details (330.972.6909).

Lantern Tours at Lake County History Center

Do ghosts and spirits really haunt the former Lake County Poorhouse?

Come take a walk through the long dark corridors with nothing but a candle to illuminate the way. Escape into the past as our guides provide you with an eerie yet fun-filled adventure! You'll visit all the locations around the Lake County History Center where shadows and ghostly figures have said to have been sighted. You'll go to areas where many have reported hearing heard creepy sounds and felt unseen hands touch them. You'll hear stories of unbelievable historically documented events that have taken place in the past, including those in the infirmary and attic. And, we'll even visit the foreboding cells used in the bygone days of the Lake County Poorhouse. We will demonstrate and you may borrow "ghost hunting" equipment, such as EMF detectors and dowsing rods, while on your tour! (or bring your own equipment – paranormal activity has been documented many times on previous explorations of the LCHS)

The 39th Annual Boardman Rotary Oktoberfestival is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 4th in Boardman Park. Attended annually by thousands, Oktoberfestival has been Boardman Rotary Club's top fund raising project since its inception. We welcome you to enjoy a wonderful fall day, the aroma of great food, kid's entertainment and of course plenty of crafts to please everyone.

One hundred percent of the proceeds (after expenses) raised by the all-volunteer Boardman Rotary Club goes to fund service projects, both locally and internationally. In the last 10 years, Boardman Rotary has donated over $400,000 to various organizations, charities and service projects.

The event started in 1976, as a community day to promote Boardman and the residents of the Township. Today, Oktoberfestival has grown into the area's largest one day arts and crafts event, drawing vendors from five states. Visitors to this annual fall celebration come from neighboring states and often arrive by the bus load.

Lantern Tours at Lake County History Center

Do ghosts and spirits really haunt the former Lake County Poorhouse?

Come take a walk through the long dark corridors with nothing but a candle to illuminate the way. Escape into the past as our guides provide you with an eerie yet fun-filled adventure! You'll visit all the locations around the Lake County History Center where shadows and ghostly figures have said to have been sighted. You'll go to areas where many have reported hearing heard creepy sounds and felt unseen hands touch them. You'll hear stories of unbelievable historically documented events that have taken place in the past, including those in the infirmary and attic. And, we'll even visit the foreboding cells used in the bygone days of the Lake County Poorhouse. We will demonstrate and you may borrow "ghost hunting" equipment, such as EMF detectors and dowsing rods, while on your tour! (or bring your own equipment – paranormal activity has been documented many times on previous explorations of the LCHS)

Christmas Candlelightings
Event Organizer – Debbie McDonald
Historic Roscoe Village
December 19, 2015 – 6pm outdoors at the Main Stage
Admission and parking is free

This beautiful outdoors event is a wonderful way to begin your Holiday Season. The gathering of guests near and far brings a special ceremony where you will experience the sound of choirs singing Christmas Carols, the reading of a Christmas story and the lighting of the 35 foot Christmas tree. The program continues as an honorary candlelighter first lights their candle and then begins lighting others candles. As the flame is shared throughout the crowd, each candle is lit, and the guests join in singing "Silent Night", the sound is that of one heavenly choir. Be sure to make this special event a part of your family traditions.
