Henry County Museum

The Henry County Museum serves as an anchor for Clinton's historic square, and Olde Glory Days is no exception. This year, the museum celebrates the community's heritage and our country's freedom with several activities.

The Henry County Museum welcomes visitors from Thursday, July 3 through Saturday, July 5. Regular admission applies from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday; admission is free on Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and again on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

A special collection of pictures from the past entitled "The Way They Worked" will be on display. On Friday and Saturday, museum visitors can stroll across the street to the dog-trot cabin to see old-time craft demonstrations.

The Museum welcomes you to stroll through the exhibits and the history, seeing life as our forefathers lived while enjoying our present day air conditioning.

You will enjoy the 13th Annual "Ike" Parker Memorial Fine Arts Show, sponsored by the Clinton Arts Council and held in the DeLozier Childrens' Corner on the eastside of the building. The show will be open from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Friday, and 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday

The Henry County Museum is located at Washington and Franklin, on the Northwest corner of the Historic Square District. It comprises four major sections:

The DeLozier Building, which will be home to the Ike Parker Fine Arts Show and the Youth Fine Art Show during Olde Glory Days.
The Anheuser-Busch Building, which holds the museum's main collections.
The Annex and Village, which will be home to the "July 4th in the Artesian Park" exhibit.
The Homestead, which includes a restored Dog-Trot log cabin, barn, and other exhibits.

Dorman House

Built in the 1850's, the historic Dorman House is one of the oldest in Clinton and one of only seven listings on the National Register of Historical Places in Henry County. Visitors can enjoy free tours of the home, located one block west of the square on Franklin Street, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday, July 4, and from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 5.

Owned by Clinton Main Street, the Dorman House was purchased in 1997 to avoid demolition. Restoration took eight years, and many documents and photos found in the house were helpful in that process. The house is now available for public tours, and funds from the tours are used for maintenance and upkeep.

Plan to visit the Dorman House during Olde Glory Days this year and sample our community's heritage.

Sunday Community Worship Service

A longstanding tradition, the Sunday morning community worship service continues this year thanks to the Clinton Ministerial Alliance. The service begins at 7:15 a.m. on the Courthouse lawn. The sermon will be given by Dr. David Maggi of the Clinton United Methodist Church. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring a lawn chair to enjoy this time of fellowship and reflection.

Following the service, the Holy Rosary Venture Crew 2235 (Holy Rosary Youth Group) will serve all you can eat biscuits and gravy. Join us for a unique worship experience.

"SPLASH" Into Olde Glory Days

In honor of the 15th year of Olde Glory Days, join us for an Olde Glory Days celebration! Come to the outdoor Artesian Pool for an old fashioned family swim on Wednesday, July 2nd from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Admission is only 15 CENTS for each swimmer! All children must be accompanied by an adult. Bring an extra 15 CENTS for a red or blue snow cone. Along with the family fun there will be various water games and relays to enjoy.

Old Fashioned Games

Sack races, balloon tosses, watermelon seed spitting, and more...

"An Olde Fashioned Fourth" is all about the days of growing up before television and cell phones, when homemade games were what entertainment was all about. On Friday, July 4, the Sunrise Optimist Club is inviting "kids" from 6 - 60 to come to the west side of the square for old-fashioned games from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. There is something for everyone, and you're guaranteed a good time!

Olde Giory Days and American Family Insurance are pleased to announce the Third Annual Wiener Dog Races will be held Friday, July 4th, at 11:00 a.m. Fast becoming a crowd favorite, the race will be held at the Dog-trot Cabin on the corner of Water and Franklin Streets, one block west of the square.

Following Tony and the Red Letter Band will be Brian Arnold, a brilliant pianist who has use of only one arm and one leg. The final group for GospelFest 2008 is Chosen Few, a group of men who sing harmony and acapella that will warm your heart and put a smile on your face.

Don't miss Olde Glory Days 2008 GospelFest. It will be a great way to kick off your holiday celebration at the Benson Convention Center, and you will want to hang around for the fireworks after the concert. GospelFest is sponsored by The Meadows, Clinton Quick Lube and New York Life.

The performers include:

Tony Bullock

Local favorite, Tony Bullock, has had the opportunity to share the stage with many other talented artists. As God opens the doors for Tony to sing and share his testimony, he is stepping forward to help others experience that same type of personal relationshiphe has found in his life.

The Red Letter Band

The Red Letter Band has been the mainstay for Friday Night at the Franklin, the musicians' night at the Ben Franklin Coffeehouse. Musically, the band covers a wide range of styles, Irom acoustic country to rock, gospel and jazz. The combination of familiar tunes and new songs done with a variety of vocalists brings a unique feel to their performances. The group consists of local musicians Kevin Griffey, Jerry Helms, Jay Olson, Jeff Goodbrake, Bill McCoy and Steve Martonfi along with some special guests adding to the sound.

Brian Arnold

We often find life more difficult and frustrating than we sometimes wish, but Brian Arnold's music is a testament to his faith in an unshakable God. At the age of six, Brian lost his left leg in a near-fatal accident. Music was the ideal adventure for a youngster with such a big physical setback. Years later, after receiving a degree in piano and making a career out of music, Brian suffered another giant setback. He lost use of his left arm when he was hit by a semi-truck on his way to a church singing. Today, Brian is an accomplished musician with talent you rarely witness in those who still have use of both arms and legs. His music is a ministry, especially to those who do not believe in the mighty power of God.

Chosen Few

There will be something for everyone during the Chosen Few's performance Sunday evening. The group sang for ten years at Silver Dollar City, and they continue to record nationally with Journey Records. Ashley, Scott and Shannon each bring unique vocals to the microphone, and they sing everything from old classics to what you're hearing on the radio today. Between Scott's four-and-a-half octave range, Shannon's heart for people, and Ashley's heartwarming smile and personality, Chosen Few has the ability to uplift the name of Jesus through song and testimony like you have never heard before. You won't want to miss this encouraging group as they minister through music at the GospelFest!
