Celebration delayed for Parkersburg Historical Home's 125th anniversary

posted on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 in News

The Parkersburg Historical Society (PHS) recently announced that a 125th-anniversary celebration of the Parkersburg Historical Home has been put on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The date of the celebration has moved from Aug. 15-16 to early December. The Lions' Club duck race originally scheduled to be part of this event will now be held at Croell Redi-Mix, 301 Railroad Street, at 2 p.m. on Aug. 15.

Even with the two-day event being pushed back, the Parkersburg Historical Home will still be open for tours on Sunday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. through Labor Day. The members of the PHS are encouraging safe sanitary practices during that time, including respecting social distancing guidelines—easy enough with the amount of room within, and providing hand sanitizer throughout the rooms.

To schedule a tour, call the Parkersburg Historical Home at 319-231-0079.
