Join us on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 7PM in Meeting Room A for the Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor’s “Layers of History.” Angie Quinn will focus on the Wren and Little Africa communities in Van Wert County, Ohio, the former Randolph family slaves in Darke and Mercer County, Ohio, and communities in Whitley County, Indiana, and Paulding, Ohio. Curt Witcher and Roberta Ridley will share "how-to" information about performing research using census data, government land office records, and other resources. John Aden, PhD, from the Fort Wayne African/African-American Historical Society Museum will provide some artifacts and collection items used by early rural African American residents in our region. Mark your calendar for this great program on the history and people of the Maumee River Valley!
