Experience History!

Be immersed in a living history presentation in John Glenn’s boyhood home. Astronaut/Senator John Glenn’s boyhood home has been moved to Main Street in New Concord, Ohio and restored as it was when he lived there until his enlistment in World War II.

Our mission is to teach American history through the prism of the Glenns’ lives. John Glenn once said, “Annie and I have lived one third of American history.”

We aspire to transport you to life in the twentieth century.

A weekend full of events is being planned including a “Friendship 7” parade from Cambridge to New Concord and a “Friendship 7” race from Cambridge to New Concord. There will also be astronaut and speaker presentations, space movies and activities for children and the Glenn Museum will be open for free walk-through tours.  A “Savor the Flavor” John Glenn food trail will be offered throughout the month of July and a John & Annie Glenn Heritage Trail is being created.  It will include sites in Muskingum and Guernsey Counties which were significant to John and/or Annie. More details will be forthcoming. Please check back for further information.
