"Part III Night At The Museum" with Frank Griffith
The Dorcheat Historical Association Museum will hold its final "Night at the Museum" for the 2013 series of speakers on the second Monday night in October 2013. Mr. Frank Griffith will speak at the Dorcheat Historical Association and Museum on October 14th, 2013.
Many may remember Mr. Griffith as the very first "Night For The Museum" speaker back in 2008 and then again in April of 2013! His encore appearance is sure to be just as captivating as his last museum event. Griffith’s last talk focused on the stores along back street during his childhood and early boyhood years. His next talk may focus on some of the old buildings and stores along front street as well as his father long time sheriff; B.F. Griffith. Griffith’s deep roots in Minden add a personal flavor to this talks. His stories are very detailed and filled with amusing antidotes. Griffith has extensive knowledge of Minden's history.
