NORTH MANCHESTER – The North Manchester Center for History invites you to an Art on the Bricks event on Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m.

Dr. Jay Perry will present a program on the history of “hooch” beginning at 6 pm. His presentation “U.S. History in Three Drinks” will relate how the founding of the country was built on rum, whiskey and beer. A special exhibit on Hoosiers and hooch created by the Indiana Historical Society is featured in the East gallery. It is sponsored by Local History Services and Kroger, according to a news release from the North Manchester Historical Society.

Following Perry’s presentation, the Eel River Ramblers will be performing on the bricks. A trio of musicians including J.P. Freeman, Dale Carpenter and Scott McAlpine will play a selection of period tunes that relate to the evening’s theme of Hoosiers and hooch. You may expect that the performance will be peppered with J.P.’ s special brand of humor and storytelling. Bring a lawn chair so you can sit, relax and enjoy the music. The sponsor for this Art on the Bricks event is Bippus State Bank.

The Art on the Bricks series was created by the Center for History to encourage visitors to enjoy the outdoors via the 1900s brick paved alleyway. The alley is one of the last places that show the original bricks the streets were once paved with.

In the event of extreme weather, the event will take place inside the museum.  

The Center for History is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
