Hebron Pie Festival

Honeybees BLISS Program July 2019

Cathy Dixon is willing to do public speaking engagements at various garden clubs, 4-H clubs, schools, libraries, and scouts.

The East Central Ohio Beekeepers Association offers a Beekeeping School so Cathy signed up. Understanding the structure and hierarchy of the inner workings of a hive, I was committed to help. The challenges the bees face daily, such as the decline of their habitat and the destruction from pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides, is astounding.

First Bliss Series 

Millersport Sweet Corn Festival August 28 - 31 2019

Car Show 2013


​​​The first annual

Hebron Pie Festival went down in

history. It was great success. The

founders and volunteers made over 300 pies and they were “sold out" by 2:00. The weather cooperated as several hundred people walked round old town Hebron watching the pie walk, pie’s in the face of several Hebron dignitaries, pie eating contest and a pie baking contest. 
It was a wonderful start to a this unique event. 

The Museum gave “Rocketship Rides” for $1.00 around the back streets of Hebron.  It never stopped all day. So many smiles,

kids loved it…. 

Yep, Them are

Corn Heads

The Queen III Sternwheeler is under construction and will launch soon.

In 2018 the Museum followed the idea of a Night Picnic at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes followed the methods used in the picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. The menu was a Fish Fry and pretended to be at another time and place, the Buckeye Lake Amusement Park.

As of January 2019 there have been 55,212  visitors to the museum, since our opening day in 1998. Come visit the Rocket Ship, play Skee Ball or look over thousands of items from the early to mid 1900's.​ Tuesday-Sunday 1 to 4, Closed Mondays.

Our Society was founded at Buckeye Lake, Ohio in 1995 and the museum opened in 1998. Please stop in and view our huge collection of Buckeye Lake Park memorabilia. Our group covers Perry, Licking and Fairfield counties including the communities of Hebron, Millersport and Thornville, along with Buckeye Lake.
