In addition to our collection of eighteenth and nineteenth centuries art, Dr. Walker (as mentioned above) will be speaking on John Campbell and the Lazy Hill collection. Campbell was a legislator, political leader and merchant who lived on Lazy Hill plantation in Colerain from the late 1740s to his death in the late 1770s. Free Perry bought a house that sat on Lazy Hill and discovered a trove of artifacts in an eroded hillside near his house. Examples of these artifacts are on display in our multicultural room in the Heritage Center. If you are unable to attend the lecture, the artifacts will remain on display and can be seen on any of the days we are open (currently Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 am to 3 pm).
