On Oct. 15, the Mac-A-Cheek Castle lawn was the backdrop for a WWII presentation by the Ohio Living History Association: WWII US Mech Forces HQ. The presentation, Called Heritage Day, depicted daily life of U.S. and German soldiers during the Moselle Campaign in France in September of 1944.
The Living History Interpreters talked with visitors about the soldiers’ routine and answered questions about the weapons and other items they had and how they would have been used. This program was offered for free and admission was free to all veterans that day.
Coming up is the Halloween program Ghosts & Goblins-Literature to Scare and Delight at Mac-O-Chee Castle at the intersection of state Routes 24 and 287 and Ludlow Road, east of West Liberty. Ghosts stories, Games, Spooky Puppets and Pumpkin Lore, not to mention the scary walk through the basement. Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23 from 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm. For further information on the Piatt Castle programs call 937-465-2821, or check out the website at www.piattcastles.com.
