Hanby House Hosts Special Exhibit

Saturday, June 13th, marks the opening of the new exhibit, Harmony, Hearth and Home, at Hanby House.  This exhibit, on display through the end of the year, features 19th century music instruments on loan from the Ohio History Connection.  One instrument of particular interest is the violin of Dan Emmett, composer from Mount Vernon, OH.  While Ben Hanby composed anti-slavery songs, Emmett's composition Dixie Land was picked up by southern states as a rallying song for the southern cause.  Also on display is a cornet that was played in the first Ohio State University band in 1882.

Hanby House is open Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4PM through September.  Tours at other times can be arranged by appointment.
