Join Us for Several Very Special Eclipse Party on April 8!

Excitement is building across the nation for a rare solar eclipse that will partially be visible right here in Southeast Ohio on the afternoon of April 8. And while Guernsey County is not anticipated to be in the path of full totality, there’s no better place to see this once-in-a-generation event than in our area.

Checkout the following ideal spots to see this phenomenal event with friends and family.

John & Annie Glenn Museum  – Born in Cambridge, Ohio, and moving later to New Concord with his family, John Glenn became synonymous with space, as John became a test pilot, astronaut, NASA consultant and later, U.S. Senator. Gather at the childhood home of America’s first astronaut to orbit earth for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to mark this celestial event. The home, now the John & Annie Glenn Museum, will offer tours, refreshments and eclipse glasses – all free of charge on April 8th from 12-4:30 p.m. (Note: Peak coverage of the eclipse is estimated to occur at3:15 p.m.) Read more about the museum here: Complete a special eclipse day (or any visit!) with stops at other local sites important to John and Annie on the Heritage Trail:
