On Thursday, September 24th, Glensheen and Zenith City Online present “Early 1900s Liquor Myths”. Featuring Glensheen’s director, Dan Hartman and Zenith City Online publisher, Tony Dierckins. The event is a modification on the popular “TED Talk” style presentation; each speaker tackles the topic in just fifteen minutes. For years at Glensheen, tour guides have talked about how strict the family was. How there was no alcohol at Glensheen because of their religion. How Clara was part of the local movement to end booze. How they were such strict Methodist that there wasn’t a ballroom because dancing wasn’t allowed in the religion. Well, after some research at the Legislative library and in the local newspaper record, the actual story may be different and more interesting. Come learn what we have learned.
Tony Dierkins will cover Lakeside Liquour – The myths and the truth.
