Village Academy Students Toured MPH

Thirty students from grades 3, 4, and 5 at the Village Academy in Powell toured the Martin-Perry House on May 22 and presented a check from their March 8 Wax Museum donations. This has become an annual event, begun in 2009, and one we look forward to. We appreciate the teachers, Kara Haustovich, Jen Wasil, Anne MacDonald, and Missy Fendrick taking time at the end of the school year to bring their classes to learn about Powell's past.
