The John & Annie Glenn Heritage Trail
Before he was a 4 term U.S. Senator, before he was America’s first orbital astronaut, before he was a military test pilot, before he was a 150-mission fighter pilot, before Pearl Harbor spurred him to enlist, John H. Glenn, Jr., was a small town plumber’s son who dreamed of flying someday.
Before her 73- year marriage to John Glenn, before moving her Marine household 24 times, before becoming a disabilities advocate, before overcoming her own disability, Annie Glenn was a small town dentist’s daughter with a life-impairing stutter and a very special boyfriend.
At their namesake museum, the John & Annie Glenn Museum in New Concord, Ohio, and 33 other locations in two adjoining counties in Southeast Ohio, visit and learn the stories behind the stories of Ohio’s first world-famous astronaut and the woman he called “the wind beneath my wings.”
