CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Historical Society will again this year present its “Night at the Museum” program on Thursday, Aug. 15, expanding its hours from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., to accommodate as many or more attendees as last year’s large crowd.
The program will take place at the society’s Kerr House Museum at 104 E. Pine St., in Clearfield.
Society members and friends will dress the part of notable local people of the past and will act out a presentation of his/her character’s biography.
The program will mimic the format of the popular movie of the same name.
During the program, the “Night at the Museum” movie will be shown continuously in the Carriage House part of the museum. At 8 p.m., the local historical film, “The Last Raft,” will be shown outdoors on the museum lawn.
This film uses original footage and interviews to tell the story of the 1938 ill-fated commemorative logging raft, which began in Mahaffey and crashed into a bridge in Muncy, killing several men on board.
The event is family-friendly and parents are urged to bring their children. It is entirely free of charge and will bring local history alive to young and old alike.
Popcorn and punch will be available on the museum porch and snacks and light refreshments will be available inside. The public is warmly welcome.
