Gov. John Kasich and U.S. House Speaker John Boehner will be in Findlay on Monday as they join former U.S. Rep. Michael Oxley for the dedication of the Michael G. Oxley Government Center at the Hancock Historical Museum.
The dedication is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the museum, 422 W. Sandusky St. The event is not open to the public.
The center was created by enhancing the Congressional Study Room and an adjacent conference room on the second floor of the main museum building.
Sarah Sisser, executive director of the museum, said Oxley made a substantial donation to help with creation of the center.
The center has interactive kiosks with touch screens and audiovisual displays focusing on the responsibilities of U.S. citizenship and government. The displays are geared toward the fourth-grade state curriculum guidelines, but will be functional and open to anyone who visits the museum .
The center will also honor the six men from Findlay who have served as U.S. congressmen from the district, including Jackson Betts, Ralph D. Cole Sr., R. Clinton Cole, Tennyson Guyer, William Mungen, and Oxley.
Oxley, 70, is a Republican who represented the 4th Congressional District, which then included Findlay and Hancock County, from 1981 through 2007, when he retired.
