Or perhaps you’d be interested in the various businesses in our downtown area? Gather at 9:30 a.m. on the Taste of Wine patio, 90 S. Main Street, to begin a guided walking tour of our historic downtown business district. A $5 ticket provides participants a brochure highlighting historic businesses and, at the end of your walk, you’ll enjoy a delicious pastry at Bakery 151.
More of a history buff? How about a free, guided Cemetery Walk of St. John’s Cemetery, which is over 200 hundred years old, at the corner of S. Gebhart Church Road and Maue Road, beginning at 10:30 a.m. St. John’s Cemetery is one of the oldest burial (and still existing) sites in southern Montgomery County.
Feeling hungry? For only $10, lunch will be served at noon at the Baum Opera House at 15 S. First Street. The program features a fashion show reflecting authentic styles from each decade of the past 200 years. At 1:30 p.m. a free quilt show will feature a new quilt created by members of the Miamisburg Monday Night Club, which will be auctioned in a silent auction. The Baum is a mansard-style opera house built in 1884.
More history? Walk off that tasty lunch by touring some of our city’s lovely historic homes along tree-lined Linden Avenue. Everyone will meet at Trinity Park (across from Trinity Church, 203 E. Linden Avenue) at 3:30 p.m., rain or shine. A $5 fee provides participants with a brochure highlighting the homes on Millionaire’s Row and will conclude in the English Manor Bed and Breakfast with a glass of wine and delicious cheese board.
Do you enjoy playing cards? A Bicentennial Euchre Party will conclude Ladies Day.
