"The Courtship & Marriage of James & Lucretia Garfield”

“The Courtship & Marriage of James & Lucretia Garfield” ~ First Lady Lucretia R. Garfield, portrayed by Debbie Weinkamer

President and Mrs. James A. Garfield’s relationship was typical of others in the 19th Century. However, there were some glitches along the way that might surprise you. Through Lucretia’s own words, you’ll learn how she crossed paths with James Garfield of Orange Township and how their lengthy courtship progressed, along with tales about high- and low-points during their 22-year marriage. Children – and politics – are woven into the First Lady’s story.

Tickets are $5 per person.
