Smithville Community Historical Society,
Welcome to the Smithville Community Historical Society online.
The general meeting of the Smithville Community Historical Society will meet on Monday, February 6 at 7 P.M. at the historic Church of God on Milton Street. There will be a brief business meeting to update the membership of our ongoing projects. Our program will be presented by Robert
Haag about Indian Arrowheads of our regional tribes and determining what an arrowhead actually is. Mr. Haag has studied arrowheads extensively
and has some surprising information about them. He is the author of four books, a trustee of the Ohio Archeological Society and has written articles for the Ohio Archeologist magazine.
Refreshments will be served by Dorine Widder and Nancy King.
Thanks to all the Volunteers who make this society possible!
Other than the group tours,
Note: “The Village Pottery is open when his sign is out front.”
