SPRING SOCIETY MEETING
Each year, members of the Swiss Community Historical Society are invited to an annual meeting on topics of historical interest.
On Sunday, April 8, 2018, the society hosted a presentation at Maple Crest, 700 Maple Crest Court, Bluffton, Ohio, by Ohio author Myrna Grove on one-room school houses. Grove began exploring schools in Williams County, Ohio, as an elementary school teacher. She also knew of her own mother’s experiences teaching in a one-room school. Her research and writing now covers schools in Ohio and other states in the former Northwest Territory. Grove has also traced her Swiss-Mennonite roots to Zurich, Switzerland. Grove’s books include Legacy of One-Room Schools.
Memorabilia from area schools was also on display.
