Open House to Welcome the Legendary "Iron Dog" Back Home in Tipp City
Information provided by the Tippecanoe Historical Society
TIPP CITY - The Tippecanoe Historical Society Museum is hosting an Open House to welcome the legendary "Iron Dog" back home. It will be held at the museum on the corner of Third and Walnut streets in Tipp City on Saturday, May 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The street from Main to Walnut will be closed. Tables set up outside will hold refreshments, display items, sale items, and some "garage sale" items. Susan Furlong will be there to autograph her two Tipp City history books and the romance novels that she has written.
The dog stood over his young master's grave in Maple Hill, eventually moved to the family farm on County Road 25-A where he stood for over 100 years. In dire need of repair, he has been beautifully restored and is now at home in the museum.
In case of rain, all outside activities will be cancelled but the museum will still be open from 10:00-2:00. For further information call 937-698-6798 or 937-506-7498.
