Sunday, August 5th- The Bath Historical Society will host a 'Pioneer Picnic'!
This old fashioned picnic will be held from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Bath Community Park as part of the Bicentennial celebration. The meal will include chicken, potatoes, salad, dessert, and lemonade. Tickets will be for sale for $10 at the Bake Shop in Ghent, Garth Andrew's, and at the Bath Township Historical Society Museum.
Bath Township used to have the annual pioneer picnic for several years. It is believed to have started in the 1860’s to commemorate the Perry Victor on Lake Erie on September 10th, 1813. The picnic also celebrated Civil War veterans in later years, and the tradition continued into the 1930s. We hope you’ll join us for this community event!
Now open- Bath Township Bicentennial! 1818-2018
New for This Year!
The Bath Township Historical Society will open the barn! The barn will exhibit those larger items that won't fit in the museum. Stop by to see two sleighs, a buggy, a wagon, and a collection of antique tools.
The mission of the Bath Township Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and own such records, books, manuscripts, charts, maps and other materials as may be deemed worthy of a place in its archives, together with articles of historical value to be kept in its museums.
