Details: Families with children ages 8 and up, join us Thursday mornings beginning June 1 through August 3 from 11:00 am to noon for a chance to journey back in time as we read the children’s book, The Cowhide Trunk by Eleanor Weakley Nolan.  The Cowhide Trunk features the Hunt family, abolitionist living near the Greentree Tavern in Warren County during the 1830’s. The book tells the story of their yearly trip down the Miami and Erie Canal to Cincinnati to purchase slave free goods at Levi Coffin’s store. Along the way they have several adventures.  A copy of the book is included free with the program.  Advance registration is requested by calling 513-932-1817 or emailing wchs@wchsmuseum.org.
