After undergoing a major $500,000 renovation, the Ohio Historical Society’s McCook House Civil War Museum in Carrollton will reopen on Friday May 20th. A full day of activities are planned for Saturday and Sunday including a Civil-War encampment.
The 1837 Federal Style brick house was built by Daniel McCook who along with his eight sons, two brothers and six nephews, served to preserve the Union. The family became known as the “Fighting McCooks” because of their combined military service.
This opening coincides with the observance of the Civil War’s 150th anniversary. There are many civil war stories in Ohio and this is one that should not be missed.
What is your favorite Ohio Civil War story or historical site?
I’ll look forward to seeing you soon,
