MassMu History Discussion Group—Tigertown Trivia
Where is the Town Clock? What Massillon mayor was impeached? Name the bears who lived in the Massillon Zoo. In whose home is the Massillon Public Library local history department? Where was the streetcar waiting station?
Local historian Margy Vogt will challenge the Massillon Museum History Discussion Group with Massillon history questions at the next session, Tuesday, November 7, 10:00 a.m. to noon.
“No need to study for the game,” Vogt said. “Most of the questions are planned to be fun for guests whether they know local history or not.” Some will be multiple choice, some will be plays on words, and others will be common sense.” She says correct answers, funny responses, and outrageously wrong guesses will be rewarded with “fabulous” prizes.
The event is held in the Fred F. Silk Community Room in the Museum’s lower level. The Museum is fully accessible. Attendance is free and open to everyone. Liebermann’s pastries and coffee are available for a donation.
Some people attend every session—the first Tuesday of every month. Others attend just when the topic especially interests them. Some guests engage actively in the conversations; others simply enjoy listening. No reservations are necessary. Chris Craft moderates the discussions.
The Museum is grateful for operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, ArtsinStark, and the citizens of Massillon. This event is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Massillon Museum, where art and history come together, is located at 121 Lincoln Way East in Massillon. A visit to the Massillon Museum is always free.
