Ted Lewis Museum.

Ted Lewis Museum

It is a very well kept and interesting museum if you are into Ted Lewis or music from his era. If you get the older lady that was there (I didn't catch her name) talking about Ted she tends to ramble but is very informative about Ted's life and even the town's history. A nice place to look around if you're wasting sometime. They even have a theater in back that plays old TV appearances and movies he was in.

Ted "Mr. Entertainment" Lewis was a crooner and entertainer in the 1920s, known for his performances of timeless songs such as "In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town" and "Where'd You Get Those Eyes."

Ted Lewis Museum

Ted Lewis was a popular singer of the 1920's (his signature line was, "Is everybody happy?") and he's a native of Circleville. They have a museum there run by a woman who is probably the President, CEO, VP, and entire membership of the Ted Lewis Fan Club.
