Now That Winter is Upon Us, Let’s Think of Warmer Things

Jeanne Wunderle will present a look back at Cuyahoga Falls Waterworks Park. Jeanne has a lot of personal history with the park and has put together a very informative and entertaining program. You will probably identify with many of the pictures.

Also, if you haven’t purchased your NHS 50th Anniversary Cookbook, they will be available at the meeting. We may also have a one or two of the Remembrance Day pictures available, and if not, we’ll take orders for the next printing.

Our March and April meetings will be work sessions. We have a lot of artifacts, pictures, documents and what-nots that need attention. We will try to have projects that don’t require a lot a skill, just patience. This is a chance to see what goes on behind the scenes of a museum or historical society. Everyone is welcome.

Murder, Mayhem & Mischief in Northampton

Why fear ghosts and legends when the darkness of humanity can be even scarier? Crime and Mayhem around Northampton, Ohio stretches back over 200 years and in that time many of its citizens have schemed, murdered, injured or otherwise been up to no good against their fellow man.

Join us as local author and historian Jerri Holland recounts the mysteries behind the stories, legends, and hushed rumors from the Township.
