State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville) today applauded the passage of House Bill 279, legislation he jointly sponsored with Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville), that honors one of Ohio’s most celebrated legends, John Glenn.

The bill designates Glenn’s childhood home, located in New Concord, as a state historic site through the Ohio History Connection. Known as the John and Annie Glenn Museum, the time-honored home allows the public to enjoy memorabilia and artifacts that link to the life and accomplishments of Senator Glenn, who in 1962 became the first American to orbit the earth and later would become a United States Senator.

“I’m proud to honor two of Ohio’s greatest heroes with the passage of this bill,” Rep. Hill said. “The John and Annie Glenn Museum is important to my district, and designating it as a State Historic Site will ensure that future generations will have the chance to connect with the history of two great Ohioans and be inspired by their legacy of public service.”

Open to the public from May to October, the historic site provides an opportunity to see how life was during the Great Depression and World War II, while also telling the story of Glenn’s childhood, his marriage to Annie Glenn and his many accomplishments through various tours and galleries.

House Bill 279 will now go to the Senate for further consideration.
