Bites & Bits of History: Volney Rogers and the Origins of Mill Creek Park

Volney Rogers

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.

Bites and Bits of History Lunch Programs are offered every third Thursday of the month. The program is free and attendees may bring their own lunch. The Tyler History Center doors open at 11:30am. In addition to ample street parking nearby, an adjacent public lot on the west side of the building is available and costs $2.50.
