The Joseph Boggs Society will open its free local museum to the public on Sunday, Sept. 26 from 1-4 p.m. and Oct. 24 from 1-4 p.m. according to an email.

Displays include Boggstown High School items and class photos, the Red Mill, Ma Kettle actress Marjorie Main, Boggstown Cabaret, Civil War Union Major General Ambrose Burnside and our railroad he owned, Boggstown Resolutions to secede from the Union, Boggstown people, places, and things, and the 1887 Seventh Day Adventist Church building that is now our home and museum.

“We hope friends who follow us on, as well as everyone in Sugar Creek Township, will join us sometime to learn more about our history, so invite your local friends to promote our community,” said President Ken Gardner.

The society plans to hold its next free quarterly meeting on Nov. 17 at 7 p.m., with “The Road To Civil War” program by former Shelby County Historian Ron Hamilton.
