History Group

The Massillon history group meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 10:00 a.m. until Noon to chat casually about a pre-announced topic, usually a narrow segment of Massillon history. Chris Craft moderates the discussion.

The "Massillon Remembers" group is free and open to everyone; new participants are welcome at any time. Some people come to every session; others attend when the topic is of special interest to them. No reservations are required. Coffee and donuts are available for a donation.

The Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East (Ohio 172), in downtown Massillon. For more information, call the Massillon Museum at 330-833-4061.
