Bites & Bits of History: Volney Rogers and the Origins of Mill Creek Park
Thursday, November 21, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This is the story of how the banks of a small tributary of the Mahoning River, already in danger from industrial development and threatened by quarry and timber interests, were turned into a scenic gem, and how one man with a vision made a lasting difference in the Mahoning Valley. Presented by Dr. Rich Shale, Local Historian and Author, Co-author of Historic Mill Creek Park.
