The Monclova Historical Foundation invites you to join us on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 at 7:00pm for our next History Lecture – The Ghost Town of Miltonville, Ohio featuring Pat Dymarkowski.
Scattered throughout Northwest Ohio lie the remains of numerous towns that were developed during the nineteenth century but have since disappeared from the cartographer’s landscape. One of these long dead “ghost towns” was located in Present day Wood County along the Maumee River just upstream from the town of Waterville, Ohio. Known as Miltonville, it was, for albeit a rather brief period in time, a prosperous town crucial to the early development of Wood County. But what happened to Miltonville and its’ inhabitants? Why did the town die out? And is there any physical evidence left to prove this ghost town even existed?
Monclova Historical Foundation Board Member Patrick Dymarkowski will present research that he has conducted on Miltonville, as well as share a few stories of some of the colorful inhabitants of the town and the local area.
The lecture will take place at the Monclova Community Center (Ottawa Room) located at 8115 Monclova Road – just 3 miles West of St. Luke’s Hospital. Admission and parking are FREE. An elevator is located at the west entrance to the building. Hope to see you there!
