The Freedom Township Historical Society’s February program will feature Jeanette Wilson Marvin Hall who will share memories of her family moving from Cleveland to Freedom during the Great Depression. Mrs. Hall’s talk will be Tuesday, February 13 at 1 pm at the Freedom Community Center; this facility is handicapped accessible. Refreshments will be served; please join us for this interesting and entertaining program.

Our society is in need of a microphone; we have the speakers. If you have a mic you can donate or let us borrow, please contact Amanda at 330.842.4374.

We are also looking for pictures of two of our one room school houses. The first is School Number 2 located at 7276 SR 303; we have pictures of it after 1941 when it became a church, but are looking for earlier pictures when it was being used as a school. The second is School Number 8 which was located on the west side of SR 88 where Hewins Road dead ends. We welcome any pictures, family histories, or other memorabilia you wish to share.
