History Happy Hour











Drink and History, the best combination! We are happy to announce that the Whaley History lectures known as History Happy Hour will be back at the house for the first time since November 2015! Starting in July and continuing through December of this year, the lectures will occur EVERY first Thursday at 7:00 PM, approximately lasting one hour. For $5.00, you are admitted into the event and receive your first glass! 


The Whaley House History Happy Hour is a program that started in the fall of 2014 and has grown into a life of their own. The lectures were moved offsite from December of 2015 to June of 2018 because of the museums' two and a half year restoration from the tragic fire.
