GENERAL EVENT NOTICE: Due to recent concern over the spread of the corona virus, Toledo.com suggests confirming with the actual organizers that this event is still proceeding as planned.

Event Details:
The Wood County Museum will be opening a new permanent exhibit, The Mary & Carl Bach Story, on October 1, 2020.
This exhibit confronts the folklore surrounding the most recognized object in the museum’s collection – Mary’s fingers. Human remains exhibited in unnatural circumstances can be emotionally concerning while inexplicably fascinating to visitors, but there is more to the story. This exhibit contextualizes how Carl & Mary met, what led to the murder, and what the trial transcripts reveal.
A grand opening celebration & open house for the exhibit will take place on Thursday, October 1, 2020 from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM. A ribbon cutting, courtesy of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce, will be held at 4:00 PM on the museum lawn.
THIS IS EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
In addition to the ribbon cutting, The Cocoon will display “The Wood County Clothesline Project” on the Museum front lawn.
Visitors will be expected to wear a facemask or covering and respect a six-foot distance from other visitors. The 30,000 square-foot museum building provides ample room for social distancing.
