Route 40 Bicentennial Wagon Train
As the Route 40 Bicentennial wagon train made its way west along West Broad Street On July 6th, The Hilltop Historical Society and other groups welcomed the wagon train at old Fire Station 17.
The 108th Annual Camp Chase Memorial Service was held on June 11, 2003. In Spite of the prospect of a large rainstorm, guest speaker Leslie Blankenship gave an inspiring talk of women during the civil war. Joe Briggs once again blessed us with his rendition of taps.
Hilltop Photo History Project
The Hilltop Historical Society is starting to prepare a pictorial history of the Hilltop. This would be prepared on a computer CD-ROM disk and would be available for sale from the society. Copies would also be provided to the Columbus and State Libraries.
Various projects over the years have created a variety of histories with some pictures. Of course Lois Neff has printed many of these in the Westside Messenger. Any photos that she currently has will be included in the project. The goal of this project would be to make a composite of all these to preserve a more complete history of the Hilltop.
With today’s technology we are able to make electronic copies of old pictures and not have to try to maintain photographs that would fade in storage. Also individuals would not have to give up their personal pictures.
Any persons who wish to either donate or let their pictures be copied, please send the to the Hilltop Historical Society. Please include any information of the picture to include names of any individuals in the picture. Credit will be given to those who provide the pictures. All pictures that are sent to be copied only will be returned to the owners as soon as possible.
We are always looking for new ideas and topics for the monthly newsletter. If you have an idea or would be interested in writing an article, please let us know.
