You won't want to miss this family friendly event featuring the Cincinnati Caledonia Society Drum and Bagpipes Band on the front lawn of Bonaventure. Member Robert Reid will lead the band playing popular Scottish tunes everyone loves. Light supper fare will be served on the veranda with adult beverages available for a donation (half the proceeds go to the performers). Bring a friend, a lawn chair or blanket for seating, enjoy a tour through the museum and log cabin, and enjoy the music and meeting old and new friends.
After a very successful house tour last year, the Museum Center has decided to do another grand tour on Saturday, September 29th. As our only fund-raising event, the cost will by $20 for members and $25.00 for non-members. Accepting reservations immediately -- limited to 250. This will be a driving event, as we are using several houses that were on tours in the past. We are insisting on car-pooling (cars can be left in the museum lot). On the east side of Loveland, four houses have been chosen: Judge James Hall summer home (also known as Dee Jay Farms) in Warren County; The Robb Montgomery Victorian home (owned by Dale Eads) on East Loveland Avenue; James Loveland's residence on Hanna Avenue; and the Paxton/Lee house on Cedar Drive, owned and restored by committee member, Jim & Kim Grethel. A must-see on the West side of Loveland is the house built by Edwin Shields, called "Christeen" (also the former Shield's Crossing Restaurant), now owned by Randy and Kathleen Campion. The sixth house on West Loveland Avenue, has been restored as an art studio and home by Dick and Deidre Dyson.
