“honoring the first American to orbit the Earth”

Its mission is to honor the first American to orbit the Earth and his partnership with a remarkable woman. We teach about life during the Great Depression and the Home Front during WWII. The Historic Site is administered by a volunteer Board of Trustees representing the village of New Concord, East Muskingum School District, and Muskingum College.

It look like a cute place for me outside. It's right by the railroad track and would be a nice place for the kids to stop and run around. There's a cute place to eat right there called The Crumb and Cup Cafe. We tried to go to the museum on Wednesday, March 23 at 12:30 pm and it was closed. It's easy to get right back on 70 so it would've been a nice stop. Just be sure to call before you go to make sure they're open.

The boyhood home of the First american to orbit the earth, it is filled with memorabilia from the space age and the historic flights of the Mercury 7. Well worth a visit if you're a die hard space fan like myself. Tickets are cheap for kids and only 7 bucks for adults so it won't break the bank. The house also hosts "Space Camps" for kids occasionally that is a cool little treat for the young ones.
