The Lorain Black River Historical Society held an open house today in celebration of being named the 2007 Spotlight Business by the Lorain International Festival. The Moore House Museum was open to the public for free today from noon to 6pm.

Who needs a Tour Bus when you have a Tour Trolley? Along with the free tours of the Museum Trolley Tours of the historic Charleston District were given from noon to 5pm. Organizers said that all seats were full in all of the 30 minute tours.

The Black River Historical Society is an all-volunteer organization that was formed in 1981 to preserve the history of the City of Lorain. The Society collects artifacts on the history of Lorain, has numerous paper files on events and people in Lorain and has a collection of over 13,000 historical photographs, many of which are located in the Archival Photos section of their website. This volume of information provides many opportunities for research on industry, business, and the genealogy of people who have lived in Lorain.

Moore House Museum hours of operation are: Monday – Friday 10 – 4:30 and Sundays 1 to 4:30. For more information you can visit their website: CLICK HERE
