Babcock House

LAKE ANN — The Almira Historical Society will host a dedication for the Babcock House and an Ice Cream Society today, July 28, at the museum, 19440 Maple St.

The house was built in the mid-1800s and was slated for demolition. The historical society rescued it and moved it to the museum property in 2003, where it has been painted, re-roofed and the porch rebuilt using old photos as a guide. The first floor also has been restored.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the dedication ceremony at 1 p.m. There also will be kids’ games, live music and ice cream sundaes made with Moomer’s Ice Cream and toppings. Sundaes are $5 each.
