2018 November NEWSLETTER – A recap of our 2018 activities. The first 25 questions on our History Quiz appeared on our website. More changes appeared on our website this summer including these new pages: News, Erie County & The Civil War, Remember When (some pretty historic photos),  and an improved Sandusky Historic Walking Tour. A record crowd of 65 people showed up for Randy Koch’s presentation as the Confederate soldier Charlie Pierce at our Annual Member meeting. It was with a sad heart that we mourned the passing of Board Member John Schaeffer who left us in April. We tell the story of the grand opening of Hudson’s Store – A Palatial Establishment in the Schmidt Block from the Sandusky Register, March 28, 1894.

2018 May NEWSLETTEROur accomplishments for the past year, update on Historic Markers, our walking tours, Report on our 2017 Annual Meeting, our involvement in the Underground Railroad, and our new improved website.
