GCHS: August Meeting

Get Ready for Ohio Town

On Monday, August 12, 2019 at 7 PM, the Greene County Ohio Historical Society, 74 West Church St, is going to do something we haven't done before – read and discuss Helen Hooven Santmyer's book, Ohio Town. She wrote the book in 1962, so people who came to Xenia after that date have a good opportunity to find out one perspective of what Xenia was all about before we got here; those who have always lived in Xenia may learn something new or remember something old. The book is very readable; you'll find yourself getting pulled in to the narrative. It is of average length, nothing like ...And Ladies of the Club which keeps you reading for about 1200 pages. All are invited to this free event; light refreshments will be served.
