Fayette, Ohio — If you are interested in genealogy, Civil War Veterans buried in Fayette’s Cemetery, or historical architecture, you will want to attend the “Normal” Sampler on Saturday March 14th from 9:00 a.m. until noon at the Fayette Opera House.
This mini workshop will offer interested participants of all ages the opportunity to have a taste of three learning events sponsored by the Bean Creek Valley History Center.
The sampler includes a presentation by Colleen Rufenacht on genealogy entitled “Discovering Your Roots”, discussions about the lives of the local guards at the Civil War Prison Camp on Johnson’s Island called “My Guys” by Ruth Marlatt, and an exploration of historical architecture in the community, “Parlors, Pantries and Places from the Past” by Tom Spiess.
Each presentation will last from 20-25 minutes with an open question and answer session during the luncheon that follows the event.
The event is designed to spark interest in three community based educational and enrichment encounters that will take place this spring that address the significance of family and local history in the building and sustaining of communities.
The free and open to the public.
For additional information, contact any member of the BCVHC or leave a message at the Fayette Opera House’s (419) 237-3111 number.
