COSHOCTON — Motels and Hostels, the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, takes place Sept. 13 at noon.

With a booming industrial and artistic scene, Coshocton County once provided ample places for room and board. Any area resident who can recall the different motels and hostels in which visitors, travelers and workers settled for the night is invited to come and share memories during this hour-long discussion.

Our Town Stories gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. The conversation animates "the old days" as participants conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not. The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring a sandwich and make the most of a lunch break.

October’s topic is "Street Names." For more information contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 740-622-8710 or jhmuseum@jhmuseum.org. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman Street, Coshocton. The Museum is open daily noon to 5 p.m. After Labor Day, hours are noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
