Mary and Carl Bach Exhibit Grand Opening

October 1, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm at Wood County Museum

The Wood County Museum will be opening a new permanent exhibit, The Mary & Carl Bach Story, on October 1, 2020.

This exhibit confronts the folklore surrounding the most recognized object in the museum’s collection – Mary’s fingers. Human remains exhibited in unnatural circumstances can be emotionally concerning while inexplicably fascinating to visitors, but there is more to the story. This exhibit contextualizes how Carl & Mary met, what led to the murder, and what the trial transcripts reveal.

A grand opening celebration & open house for the exhibit will take place on Thursday, October 1, 2020 from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM. A ribbon cutting, courtesy of the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce, will be held at 4:00 PM on the museum lawn. In addition to the ribbon cutting, The Cocoon will display “The Wood County Clothesline Project” on the Museum front lawn.

THIS IS EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Visitors will be expected to wear a facemask or covering and respect a six-foot distance from other visitors. The 30,000 square-foot museum building provides ample room for social distancing.

RSVP’s appreciated, send to marketing@woodcountyhistory.org.

This exhibit was made possible with support from Anonymous, Mike & Terri Marsh, Alicia’s Voice, The Cocoon, Wood County ADAMHS Board & NAMI, Doug & Sandy Kerr, Kelli Kling, Melissa Krieger, Michael Sibbersen, Elizabeth Geer, Michael Penrod, Patricia Limes, Corey & Jodi Speweik, and the Wood County Historical Society.
