2019 Walking tour of downtown Powell

Sherry Carmichael led us on a walking tour of downtown Powell, highlighting many historical buildings and presenting interesting anecdotes. This annual event was educational, inspirational and an enjoyable way to spend a beautiful summer evening. Topping off the event we returned to the Martin Perry House for cookies and a tour of the house for those interested. We hope you will join us next year for a pleasant and educational summer evening in Powell.

Powell Parks and Recreation Campers visited the Martin-Perry House

Day campers from the Powell Parks and Recreation Summer Day Camp program visited the Martin-Perry house to learn about Powell history and what life was like in the community more than a century ago. The questions were perceptive and the conversations lively. The hit of the tour was the restored (non-functioning) outhouse.
