Congratulations to the Ohio Historical Society on reaccreditation by American Association of Museums, as well as to the OHS sites newly accredited for the first time. Among those are the Adena Mansion (Chillicothe) and the Johnston Farm (Piqua) [check out their blog], both of which I have visited and really enjoyed. The house museums and the stories at both sites are just fascinating. Furthermore, another newly accredited site is the Armstrong Air & Space Museum (Wapakoneta), which is directed by a friend of mine – so special congrats to him as well.
