Saturday, July 11 at the Old Church on the Commons in the Lower Community Hall.

Although the BHS&M event staff is still busy planning event details, we hope to offer a fun-filled step into the comic, sci-fi, and fantasy universe. Whether you are into DC and Marvel comic books, or Star Wars or Star Trek space adventures, or the Dr. Who or Harry Potter universe…rejoice. Have we got an event for you?

This fun filled day is geared for children for fans of science fiction and fantasy. Sponsored by the Bedford Historical Society & Museum and JC Comic & Cards (Cuyahoga Falls) this event will feature special guest appearances and FREE comic books while supplies last. Refreshments will also be available for purchase.

Volunteers and Friends of the Museum are welcome and encouraged to attend. Your involvement is necessary for this community wide event to be a success. If you enjoy working with people or planning events, please contact Louise Novak (novak.louise@gmail.com) or call 216-870-3999 to discuss volunteer opportunities.

Charitable donations and event sponsors are always welcome to help support the BHS&M and it’s education mission.

 

 

1892 Old Baptist Church

The Late Gothic Revival style building has an interior Akron Plan design. Jacob Snyder was the architect of this popular design inspired by the Protestant Sunday School movement in the late 1800s. Snyder died before the building was completed. It has classic elements including a sloped sanctuary with curved pews and Sunday school classrooms radiating out from the main meeting area. The sanctuary also has a restored 1914 Moeller pipe organ, beautiful stained glass windows and a lead lined baptistery designed for full immersion.

Significant collections within the 1892 Old Baptist Church:

  • Renovated sanctuary pews and original lectern;
  • 1914 Moeller Pipe Organ
  • Lead glass skylights
  • Original hinges and hardware

The upgraded Community Room in the lower level contains new kitchen equipment, tables and chairs for public use. It is available for rental. For information and pictures please see Hall Rental
