Description
Cambridge was the boyhood home of actor William Boyd, born in nearby Hendrysburg in 1895, who became famous for his film and television role as Hopalong Cassidy.
The Guernsey County Historical Society Museum , 218 N. 8th St., is a restored early 19th-century house containing Cambridge memorabilia from the town's beginning through the present; phone (740) 439-5884.
Nearby parks, including Salt Fork, Senecaville Lake and Wolf Run offer recreational activities throughout the year..
The holidays are particularly festive in downtown Cambridge. From November 1 to early January the Dickens Victorian Village is set up along Wheeling Avenue. Ninety-three scenes populated by handcrafted mannequins dressed in period clothing are set up at each lamppost and bench between 6th and 11th streets; they depict Dickens-era activities and some of his literary characters, including Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim. Downtown retailers have brochures available. For more holiday merriment, stop by the 1881 Guernsey County Courthouse on an evening from early November to early January; each night it is lit with 30,000 lights set to holiday music.
