Senior Citizens from Huntington and the surrounding area are invited to the Forks of the Wabash for its annual Senior Day, Tuesday, Aug. 21, at the historic park in Huntington.
The buildings and grounds will be open from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Senior Citizens will have an opportunity to participate in activities, listen to speakers who can provide information about the local history and will be treated to refreshments. There may also be a sing-along.
The hub of the activities will be the museum's new area in the visitor's center. The historic park also includes the 1834 Chief Richardville House, the 1848 Joseph and Margaret Nuck log home and a replica of a 19th century one-room schoolhouse.
Costumed interpreters will be available to share the history of each building.
The log trading post is undergoing restoration and is currently closed to the public.
Guests may stroll along the Forks of the Wabash Trailhead section of the Huntington River Greenway, taking in the vintage gardens, which are planted and maintained by the Huntington County Master Gardeners.
The visitor's center is handicap accessible and guests will be able to fully participate in activities without ever leaving the building. A reduced admission fee will be charged, and the gift shop will be open. The Historic Forks of the Wabash is located at 3011 W. Park Drive, Huntington.
