2019 Car Show

The 2019 Jim Matheny Car Show was Spectacular!!! Why...


“Judge Cooperrider, Left, spoke to the Historical Society, in May, 2019, on the trials of Perry County in our first BLISS Series of the season.  We had our largest crowd ever over 45 people.  Join us for the next one.”

The Millersport Corn Festival had a terrific year in 2019, thanks to lots of beautiful weather. Our "Big Money" 2019 booth brought in needed cash, to support the Buckeye Lake Museum.

Headliners this year were Ronnie Milsap on Friday, and John Anderson on Saturday.

The Judges: Dave & Brenda

The Buckeye Lake Museum, in conjunction with the Buckeye Lake Library, hosted a Veterans Day Presentation focusing on WWII, Saturday, November 11th. The museum laid out a few of the WWII military uniforms it has for the public to view, some complete with all the medals and honors. The museum docent, Brenda, even dressed up in a Naval W.A.V.E.'s uniform.

There is volunteerism in the air around the 2020 Queen of the Lake III tour boat.  Over 35 people attended the first training and informational meeting.  They will learn to be a Pilot and Crew on the Museum’s long awaited sternwheeler.  Some familiar faces and lots of new faces.   Classes will be held 8 weeks to train anyone who wants to volunteer to work on the boat.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact the Museum.

Our 2018 Summer Tour last year followed the wonderful idea of a Night Picnic. The event  took place at the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum. Themes followed the methods used in the Fish Fry picnics of the 50’s and 60’s. Click Here to see the Event

A presentation was viewed about Ohio's WWII Veterans, with some stories being told by the servicemen. Afterwards, J-me Braig, Director and daughter of the founder, Donna Braig, read aloud some of the names of the BL men that went off to war during that time. Some had generations of servicemen and servicewomen. Then, J-me opened it up to everyone to tell their personal stories and many did. Stories from WWII and other conflicts like Korea, Viet Nam and the Cold War. Refreshments were served.
