Croghan Park Rededication/War of 1812 Encampment

40 years ago Croghan Park was built and we are celebrating with a dedication of the new bridge, rain garden and placement of the Croghan Memorial. Col. George Croghan camped with his army in this area on the way to the defense of Fort Stephenson (now Fremont Ohio) in 1813. Want to learn more about Col. Croghan? We will have a speaker or event each month, leading up to our event in July.
The following speakers will be held at 7:00 pm at the Fairlawn Kiwanis Community Center (3486 S. Smith Road). There is no cost to attend.
Feb. 25 - Sharon Myers speaks on Col. George Croghan, Ft. Meigs and Ft. Stephenson
