Remembering Washington County in WWI

Tickets $15, general admission.

A concert commemorating the centennial of WWI

In April 1917 Congress declared the US was at war. The First World War stands as a forgotten time in American history. On Founders Day in Marietta, Ohio, The Castle Historic House Museum’s event “Lest We Forget” will remember Washington County’s involvement in this conflict with an evening of WWI era music. This one-night-only concert features talented regional musicians and renowned speakers at the historic Peoples Bank Theatre in the heart of downtown Marietta. Musical renditions by Marietta College Concert Choir & Wind Ensemble, The Wayfarers, Barefoot McCoy, Square Thirteen, Dan Heidt, Anthony Mossburg, and Shawna Corder. Speakers include Author Dr. Paul Lockhart (Wright State University), Sergeant First Class Joshua Mann, Historian (Ohio National Guard), Becki Trivison, WWI Coordinator (Ohio History Connection), Dr. Matthew Young (Marietta College), and more. Join us as we reflect and honor the memory of Washington County’s men and women 100 years later.
