The Mound Builders

Saturday, Sept. 13
2 p.m., Wright Memorial Public Library

The Historical Society and Wright Memorial Library will present “The Mound Builders” as part of this year’s Far Hills Speakers Series. In the Ohio Valley region, there were numerous, mysterious earthen structures in the forms of mounds, enclosures and effigies. This program explores some of these earthworks and the ancient people who built them, their reasons and fates. The presentation will be given at Wright Memorial Public Library by Mark W. Risley, president of The Oakwood Historical Society. The library is at 1776 Far Hills Ave.

Have your Portrait done amidst the Autumn Colors

Fall Photoshoot

Photographer Betty Cochran is returning to the homestead again this year to take advantage of the lovely grounds as a backdrop for your portraits. She will spend 20 minutes with your group -- friends, family, pets -- and you will receive a CD of all the images along with a release for their use.

A donation of $50 to the Oakwood Historical Society is tax deductible. This is one of two fundraisers we hold annually to support the organization, the activities, and the upkeep of the house and property. Make your appointment now.
