Have you seen the Worthington episode of the award winning Columbus Neighborhoods documentary series produced by WOSU?
The Worthington episode premiered on October 5, 2014. If you did not see it you can check the WOSU broadcast schedule to find out when it airs next. You can also view clips of the Worthington episode online. The clip titled Worthington – Flint Lock Rifle Explanation features senior history curator Cliff Eckle demonstrating how a flint lock rifle is loaded. The rifles pictured are examples of rifles from the 1800s that are part of the Ohio History Connection’s firearms collection.
Not only does our curator and pieces from our firearms collection appear in the film, some of the re-enacted historical scenes were filmed in Ohio Village. The Village is a recreated 1860s town on the Ohio History Connection campus in Columbus.
