Sleigh Bells Ring… Are You Listening?

Up at Spring Hill, we are all ready for Christmas. We had an amazing Member Christmas Party at the beginning of December and are starting to prepare for hopefully being open for Christmas tours next year!

It’s this time of year that people are really digging deep into their hearts to give back to places who have influenced them in the past year. We hope that this year, you remember Spring Hill for gifts or donations. Spring Hill Memberships are great gifts for people both young and old with lots of benefits for the members, and for Spring Hill, including reduced prices on rentals, free tours, and early bird tickets to some of our events. Go to our “Support Spring Hill” tab at the top of the page to find out more on becoming a member.

You can also give back to Spring Hill in a variety of ways. Below is our annual Christmas Wish List. These are supplies that help us tend to our collection, expand our reach on the grounds and in the community, and generally get through the next year. You can either help us buy this on your own, or get together as a group to donate or sponsor one of these objects. Or, remember to include us in your financial giving. Remember, all gifts are tax deductible (just ask us for a receipt), and if you’re giving financially, you can specify what you’d like your donation to go towards. For more information on our long term projects we are raising funds for, call our office at 330-833-7649 or email Sammy Kay at director@springhillhistorichome.org.

Speaker Series: Technology and the Civil War

The Civil War made great strides in the technology used during the war. However, this is not just the new guns, cannons, and other weapons used on the battle fields. Learn about the Medical Corps and the Balloon Corps, both founded and used during this war. Also hear about exactly how the armies fed and clothes the thousands of troops fighting in the war through all seasons.

Join Chris Craft of the Massillon Museum to discuss these new technologies being used during the Civil War. He will be speaking Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 6:30pm in the Massillon Public Library Auditorium. The presentation will last approximately 1 hour. This event is free and all are welcome.
