History of Harveysburg

The Harveysburg Community Historical Society is sponsoring a “Drive Around/Walk Around Tour” of the Village of Harveysburg to highlight points of interest in the village. The “First Free Black School in Ohio” and the “Home of the First Woman in Ohio to Receive a Doctor Certificate” are two points of interest among 24 on the tour.

The event is noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19. All participants are to meet at the First Free Black School Museum at 23 North St. to receive instructions.

The Clinton-Massie Marching Band will first play a few numbers at the museum and will continue to play at different locations in the village as the tour continues.
