I had decided to leave the Interstate for a much more enjoyable pace of the Historic National Road, which took me through the Village of New Concord, where I found the John and Annie Glenn Museum. This unplanned stop allowed me to tour the boyhood home of astronaut and U. S. Senator John Glenn. The tour is based on the period of 1937-1944 with artifacts and furniture that were own by the Glenn’s. Our tour followed a large school group, but even so our guide maintain our interest and was more than willing to answer any questions that we may have had. Admission to the home is $7.00 and our tour lasted for about 40-minutes. For a spur of the moment stop, I found that this was one of the hidden gems of my Memorial Day Road Trip. The John and Annie Glenn Museum is located right on Main Street (the Old National Road) in the Village of New Concord and is well worth a stop if you find yourself in the area.
