Windham Historical Society News


Windham – The Windham Historical Society is back in business after the stunning success of the Windham Bicentennial celebration in July, in which the Society was an active partner.
The next meeting is Monday, October 17 at the Brick Chapel on North Main Street, where year-long activities will be planned.
Tentative plans call for a Fall Festival and Chili Cookoff, an organization Christmas party, and sponsorship of several scholarships for Windham High School students.
The Society is also still selling Ralph Pfingsten’s marvelous book on the Ravenna Arsenal, which would make a great Christmas gift, with President Lynnea St John being the contact person. The book is $50, with a percentage of the sale cost going to the Historical Society.
At the September meeting, donated materials came from former Windham teachers Warner Taiclet, Judy Blewitt, and Lou Anne Kilgore.
The Society is always interested in obtaining, whether permanently or on loan, any object with relevance to Windham. Items of special interest include films, pictures, scrapbooks, ephemera, newspapers, advertising, tokens, school items, sports items, or family genealogy. The society has extensive facilities for copying paper items.
For more information on the Society or to purchase the Arsenal Book, please call President Lynnea St. John at 330-326-6061, or email her at lynnya45@yahoo.com.
