Special Feature: Historic Performances at
Klinkhart Hall

Bradley Kincaid

So far, we do not know much about early performers at Klinkhart Hall, but an old poster discovered in the basement during a 2017 clean-up gave us a good reason to start doing research.

Here’s the story behind the poster, and a sample of the performance. It’s the first in what we hope will be an ongoing series of Historic Performances at Klinkhart Hall.
