Ridge House Museum
Built in 1875, the Ridge House Museum is housed in a typical Gothic revival style home with period furnishings to portray the values and lifestyles of a middle class family. The Ridge House structure and grounds have been restored and are maintained to their Victorian roots.
In celebration of the museum’s 40th anniversary, the Ridge House Museum Advisory Committee is hosting a Strawberry Social on June 12.
On July 9, 2016 historic characters from Ridgetown and Howard Township’s past come alive in the Ridge House Museum’s event Tales from Greenwood. The museum’s many volunteers portray lively historic tales on walking tours of our local Greenwood Cemetery. Tickets are available through www.CKtickets.com.
The Ridge House Museum hosts boys and girls, ages 6-11 for crafts, games, and activities on Wednesday afternoons throughout July and August. Each week’s theme is based on different activities in a Victorian town; children will host a picnic, recreate town-wide celebrations, or learn about common small town businesses. Do you have a child who loves to dress up? Come in your finest Victorian costume! Wacky Wednesdays Summer Camps are 1-4 pm on July 6, 13, 20, 27, August 3, 10 and the cost is $12 per child for each Wednesday. Space is limited so register your child for any or all camp days in advance by phone, 519-360-1998, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
