The National Civil War Museum, Harrisburg, PA, 2014 30 Oct 2014, 7:00 am




To understand what has made our great country what it is..one needs to look to the past.

Opening its doors in 2001, The National Civil War Museum offers an insightful glimpse into that past..documenting and cataloging four years of that war (1861-1865) as well as before the war and the aftermath, encompassing the years of 1850-1876.  Thousands of artifacts and documents are available for public viewing, as well as many thousand more securely stored for future exhibits,  scholarly research, museum members and private appointment. In 2009, the museum became an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

The museum exhibits were designed and formulated to tell “the entire story of the American Civil War … without bias to the Union or Confederate causes”. Comprised of changing and permanent exhibits, “Meet Mr. Lincoln” is the newest permanent, interactive exhibit.

Museum Hours: The Museum is open 7 days a week. Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri, Sat 10am – 5pm, Wed 10am – 8pm and Sun 12pm – 5 pm

A Glimpse of Fall at the 1825 Inn, 2014 27 Oct 2014, 7:00 am



THE 1825 INN


FALL 2014




Each season brings its own special magic..and Fall at the 1825 Inn is no exception.

Days are getting a little shorter, sweaters and jackets are making an appearance, and there is that certain nip in the air..not to mention the occasional whiff of wood smoke.  To many, it’s a time to mourn the loss of suntan lotion and air conditioning for another spell.  Not to us at the Inn as we look forward to what this time of year brings.

The garden was good to us this year.  Tomatoes and green beans couldn’t thank us enough for giving them honored spots in our garden plot..each time we say this will be the last harvest, more seem to appear!  Sunny zinnias continued to grace our tables in the breakfast room until a week or so ago.  We’re now noticing beauty of a different sort in the rose hips from our prolific canes, sedum is coming into its own  and, of course, the leaves are changing quickly  (and dropping just as fast!).


We at the Inn hope not only that you take time to smell the roses, but take the time to enjoy all that these Fall months have to offer..

The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hershey Theatre, October 25, 2014 20 Oct 2014, 7:00 am





OCTOBER 25, 2014



Long a cult favorite, this 1975 released film was based on the 1973 musical The Rocky Horror Show. The screenplay was written by Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brien (who wrote The Rocky Horror Show musical). Intended to be an homage  to science fiction and B horror movies…it definitely hit its mark.  Rocky Horror starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick.

Although it was largely ignored on its release, it rapidly became one of the most famous (and to this day, still is) midnight movies…it all started at the Waverly Theater in New York City in 1976, where audience members participated in the antics, dance and music.

In 2005, The Rocky Horror Picture Show was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

More details are available on the fan-based website.

Show Time: 11:59

Admission: $8.00
