The Many Faces of “Old Glory"
Here's something really special! Vane Scott III tells the story of how our flag came to be. He shows twenty-eight beautiful full-sized flags as he regales us with fascinating and often humorous stories. Acclaimed to be the "Finest Flag Show in America!" Now this is not a history lecture. There is humor in some of the stories and we hope you will laugh when it is funny, but we know you will be thrilled when it is thrilling. This is a lunch performance on Olde Main Street.
Victory Canteen Singers
Groups will be treated to a dinner performance by the Victory Canteen Singers, a group who will entertain you with the nostalgic sounds of the forties. The music of the 1940s brought hope and joy to our GIs and those on the Home Front alike—and the Victory Canteen Singers keep that tradition alive in rich, three-part harmony. Their repertoire includes all the treasured gems of the WWII era plus patriotic classics including a musical salute to each branch of the US armed forces.
The Olde Main Street Museum
An entire early 1900s town inside a 1915 building that formerly housed a Ford dealership and the Herco Factory. 23 storefronts where groups can stop by the Miskimen Hardware Store; the village newspaper; the old-time soda shop; town jail; bank; shoe repair shop; fire department; the popular Clothing Store and the Sam Douglas Saloon, which was literally axed by Carrie Nation during her temperance campaign. Living historical characters populate the village, so you might run into Woody Hayes, Cy Young, or Carrie Nation herself!
