Admission is $10 per person and $8 for students and Historical Society members. The Museum is located at 13660 County Home Road in Bowling Green. Dress appropriately for both the indoor and outdoor portions of the tour, and bring a flashlight if you like.
The Wood County Park District will also be holding several Halloween-themed activities and events.
