History Lecture – Wed., MAR 16 @ 7P

The Monclova Historical Foundation invites you to join us on Wednesday, March 18th at 7:00pm for our next History Lecture. 

Doctoral student Travis Sheaffer will present upon the life of Civil War General Robert Kingston Scott of Henry County, Ohio. A member of the 68th Ohio Infantry and later governor of South Carolina, Scott is probably most know for shooting a man in 1880 in Napoleon, Ohio which resulted in a sensational trial that made national headlines. Scott was eventually acquitted, leading to public outrage.

So, how is it that Scott was acquitted of all charges?  Did Robert Kingston Scott get off ‘Scott-free’?

Travis Sheaffer was born, raised, and lives in Napoleon, Ohio and has been fascinated by this complex story since he was a young boy.  Sheaffer is a doctoral student at Bowling Green State University in the Leadership Studies Doctoral Program in the College of Education. After graduation, Sheaffer plans on authoring and publishing a book on General Scott.

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.  The event is sponsored by The Lakes of Monclova. Hope to see you there!

History Lecture Series – The Ghost Town of Miltonville, Ohio – 10/16/19 @ 7P

The Monclova Historical Foundation invites you to join us on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 at 7:00pm for our next History LectureThe 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!
