[ARCHIVED] Cozby Library Presents: Hidden History - The Ruth Paine House

Cozby Library

Join the Cozby Library and Community Commons on Sunday, October 22, at 2 pm for an afternoon of historical exploration!


In the fall of 1963, the FBI came to the home of Ruth Paine, a suburban homemaker who was friends with Marina Oswald. Marina’s husband, Lee Harvey Oswald, was suspected of assassinating President John F. Kennedy. Kevin Kendro, Archives Coordinator at the Irving Archives and Museum, will uncover the hidden history of the Ruth Paine House Museum which has been restored to the way it looked in 1963. The home also includes multimedia exhibits that describe how Ruth’s friendship with Marina brought Lee Harvey Oswald into their home. Kendro will discuss the process of restoring the home and preserving the story of those who lived there.

While this program is intended for adults, older children and teens are welcome to attend with an adult. Registration is not required.
