AWTHS to Host Bear's Mill on May 8

On Thursday, May 8 at 7pm at the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society Merri Niekamp, Outreach Manager from historic Bear's Mill, will be sharing a fun mix of history, culture, agriculture and shopping with a focus on historic preservation. This year's theme for Historic Preservation Month 2014 is "New Age of Preservation: Embark. Inspire. Engage." - a theme quite fitting for the non-profit organization, The Friends of Bear's Mill, Inc. as the new owners and stewards of the Mill and Property. Included in the program will be information and samples from the Mill Store and Gallery, which offers art, pottery, stone ground flours and private-labeled food items.

Our programs are offered at no charge and open to the public. Active membership in the historical society is encouraged to help preserve our past history of Southern Darke County for future generations. Sign up at these events or contact information is available through our web site at www.arcanumhistoricalsociety.org.

Plan to join us in May to be inspired and embark in preservation efforts in our local community. From walking tours, learning about our historic sites, seeing the display at the Arcanum Public Library, and exploring what the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society and the town has to offer, you will be engaged. Pick up brochures from local businesses and the historical society which feature events during the month of May regarding preservation efforts in Darke County.
