The Cuyahoga Valley Genealogical Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. Members and interested public are invited to attend at the Willow Room of the Independence Civic Center, 6363 Selig Blvd. in Independence.
This month’s presentation will be “The Ohio Historical Markers Program: More Than Mere Signs” presented by Denny Reiser.
The Ohio Historical Marker Program is more than metal markers scattered along the roadways. It’s a means of telling community stories and it gives the traveler a “sense of place.”
Reiser is an accomplished photographer and has contributed 1,000 photos to the Ohio Historical Marker Program as part of his extensive research. He will sharestories gathered from 20 years of research about some of the people, places and events that have put a mark on our state history.He will also help people navigate Remarkable Ohio, a website to discover all the markers.
Coffee and refreshments will be served. For additional information contact Cuyahogavalleygensociety@gmail.com. ∞
