States Historical Society administra­tor Rachel Barber," We hope that many local residents will stop by and visit

several of these sites on Sunday, making an afternoon of learning more about our county's history from our many museums. We so appreciate the collaborat­ion of

many of our village historical societies in making history more readily available to our residents and guests alike."

Auglaize County: In Motion is the heritage tourism initiative

based upon the themes of motion, movement, and transporta­tion reflected in so much Auglaize County history. IN MOTION

projects have been funded on three separate occasions by the

Ohio Humanities Council, including this year.

Founded in 1963, the Auglaize County Historical Society collects, preserves, interprets, and shares the

history of Auglaize County, enriching lives by connecting people and communitie­s to the past and to each other.

Historical Society is also on Facebook.
