The Federal wing of the Orange Johnson House is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year. Much of the Society's focus has been on the Johnson family's nearly 50 years in the home. However, for nearly a century from the time the Johnsons sold the house until the Society acquired the structure, a number of owners and renters occupied the OJ House. This program, presented by Society Director Kate LaLonde, will examine these residents, from several African American families who rented the home, two different single women who kept the house as their country home to the north of Columbus, and a family that made significant additions in the 1920s. Help us celebrate - cake and punch will be served!
Talk will be preceded by a brief business meeting.
