The Lisbon Area Historical Society had a very successful day during the 250th celebration on August 10. The Society’s museum was open from 10am-3pm and hosted dozens of visitors, many planning a trip back when they can browse around and look through the collection when it won’t be as crowded. Some visitors also brought in artifacts to donate to the ever-growing collection.
