On June 8 the Ernest Warther Museum & Gardens will host a dedication and unveiling of its National Historic Marker.

June 8 holds a special place for the Warther family. Not only was the present-day museum building opened on this date in 1963 by Mooney Warther, but also Mooney Warther passed away exactly 10 years later.

Join them as they dedicate this marker from their listing on the National Historic Registry, a designation given to them by the National Park Service. The dedication will take place at 9:30 a.m.

In addition, the museum wants to remember Mooney Warther Day, put on by the city of Dover and spearheaded by the Jaycees in 1963, and thank the city and its residents for years of support by also hosting half-price admission for all Dover residents. Guided tours are at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. No reservations are needed for attending the marker dedication, and it is a free event.

Ernest Warther Museum & Gardens is located at 331 Karl Ave. in Dover. Call 330-485-3891.
