Admission to this family event is free. This event is the first in the series of centennial events we have planned for this year.

Warren Tribune articles

McKinley and the National McKinley Birthplace Museum have recently been in the Warren Tribune Chronicle! The first is Part 2 of the weekly series the Tribune is doing about McKinley’s Presidency (with thanks to Mr. Finan for the article): http://www.tribtoday.com/news/local-news/2017/03/mckinleys-cabinet-appointments-smallest-in-history/

And the second is about the museum’s first centennial event, Carole Starre-Kmiecik as Clara Barton. We would like to thank the Tribune for these.
