The new history book

The new history book, "Ft. Loramie, Main Street and Beyond", will be delivered December 21st. It's cutting it close for Christmas gifts and we won't be able to mail any before the holiday but they will be available for pickup at the Silver Cross and the museum in Ft. Loramie. Order from Ann Stidd, 937-295-2040 or Jim Rosengarten, 937-295-3998. The book is hardback, has 268 pages and will cost $35.00. A check should be made out to the Ft. Loramie Historical Association. Amount for postage will be determined later.

The book is being published in commemoration of the 175th anniversary of the Village of Ft. Loramie and covers the early frontier, immigrants, religious heritage, businesses, organizations, schools and memories.

Ann Stidd is a major hero in this project. She did all the organizing and she and Laura Paulus did the proof reading. It was a major job that wouldn't have happened without them.
