Plain City Historical Society will Commemorate Lincoln Funeral Train on Wednesday, April 29.


To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s death and the passing of his funeral train through Plain City in 1865, the Plain City Historical Society will host a program at the former railroad station site between 8-9 pm on Wednesday, April 29 at 250 Maple Street in Plain City.

The ceremony will include bagpiper Drew Lear, local VFW and American Legion Honor Guard, as well as an address from retired Lt. General Charles E. Stenner. There will be a moment of silence at 8:45 pm (the time of the train’s arrival), followed by an Honor Guard rifle salute and the playing of “Taps” by trumpeter, Doug Weakley. To find out more, go HERE.

Prior to the funeral train ceremony, attend a Civil War music performance by Steve Ball at 7 pm at the Plain City Public Library, 305 West Main Street. Once the concert is done, you can walk from the Library to the Historical Society’s program on Maple Street.

Musician Steve Ball will perform American Civil War music on an authentic 1860’s guitar.
