Watt Center Program
The Watt Center for History and the Arts in Barnesville is pleased to welcome local historian Bruce Yarnall for a trip through 215 years of Barnesville history Tuesday evening, October 24 at 7 p.m. This illustrated PowerPoint program is an expanded version of Yarnall’s keynote at the April Barnesville Chamber Banquet.
From the excitement of the long running Barnesville Pumpkin Festival to the planned return of the State Theater to the downtown streetscape, this event is a must for anyone interested in local history.
Yarnall will present the one-hour program at the Watt Center, 511 Watt Avenue (near the historic B & O Depot). Doors will open at 6 pm to welcome visitors to explore the displays of local history located in the historic office building. Donations of $5 at the door will be appreciated. The center is handicapped accessible. For more information call Mary Sidwell (740)926-1547 or Beverly Hannahs (740) 425-1537.
