COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) today applauded the passage of House Bill 279. 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. The legislation was sponsored by Speaker of the Ohio House, Clifford A. Rosenberger and Rep. Brian Hill.

“Senator John Glenn continues to be one of Ohio’s cherished sons,” said Rep. Anielski. “Senator Glenn lived a life dedicated to his state and his nation from his service as an aviator in the United States Marine Corps, through his bravery in participating in the space program, and his service to Ohio in the United States Senate. I am happy to stand with my colleagues in the House to honor his memory. As Chair of the State and Local Government Committee, I was privileged to honor one of Ohio’s most celebrated legends, John Glenn through the committee process.”

The museum is 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.
