The mission of the John & Annie Glenn Historic Site is to to tell the story of 20th Century American History through the lives of John & Annie Glenn and to create educational programs for learners of all ages. On the main floor of the home, visitors are treated to a living history tour.  Actors in costume will greet you at the door and take you through the house as though it were the day you visit, only in 1944.  At that time, we were in the midst of WWII and John Glenn, among many, many others were away from their homes, fighting for our country.  They talk about life on the Home Front and the sacrifices that were made to help with the war effort.  Also, you will see John Glenn’s bedroom and some of his childhood toys (tricycle, train set, sled) in addition to displays on his military career, the space program, and his political life.
