Prohibition in Mason
September 12 Mason Museum Program to Uncork Stories Of 100-Year-Old Social Changes During Prohibition Have you heard about how folks in the 1920s gathered to “play cards” in the third story Oddfellows Hall in downtown Mason? Rumors of certain beverages being consumed there persist to this day. On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. at the monthly meeting of the Mason Area Historical Society, an important social and political era in the lives of local people will be the topic. Board member and local historian Carolyn Cooper will discuss “Prohibition in Mason.” The meeting will take place in the Mason Area Historical Museum’s Virginia Schlichter Auditorium at 200 E. Oak Street in downtown Mason. The Society will hold a brief business meeting prior to the program. The program and museum admission are both free and open to the public.
