Clinton County History Center

Travel back to 1916 on Tuesday

The Clinton County Historical Society will hold its Annual Meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 12. After a short business meeting, Kay Fisher will present “Clinton County Revisited: 100 Years of History.”

Fisher will share what was making local news 100 years ago, covering the mini-scandal about the newspaper editor’s wife shopping in Washington Court House, “Jack the Peeper”, Dr. Massie’s revival sermon on women’s dresses and the provoking of lust, and the day Leo Weltz lost his dog. This was also the year that Anna Barbara Babb was named the cutest baby in Clinton County.

The Annual Meeting will take place at The Clinton County History Center at 149 E. Locust Street in Wilmington. The public is invited to attend the Annual Meeting (members only can vote) and learn about Clinton County in 1916.
