Early days in Huron County and its various communities, including Norwalk, Bellevue, Greenwich, Monroeville, New London, Chicago and Wakeman, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 20 Page Booklet of excerpts reproduced directly from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio and other hard-to-find sources. The spiral bound booklet is printed single-sided on 60# paper, with the print enlarged for easier reading. A sheet of clear vinyl has been added to protect the front cover. IN ADDITION TO the booklet, the buyer will receive THREE Computer-Enhanced 8 1/2 x 11 Prints made from engravings in the original book and reproduced on parchtex paper. They include a view of Norwalk in 1846, a tree-lined street in Norwalk in 1886, and a delightful photo of two friends - a dog and a horse. Among the many and diverse topics covered: Early settlers, the murder trial and execution of two Indians; Senaca John, and other Iroquois and Senecas; the Norwalk Academy attended by President Hayes and other notables, the Norwalk horn-blower; the Norwalk maples; and the unusual friendship of a dog and a horse.
