NEWS FROM THE PAST
THE HAMILTON MANSION ON NORTH BAY – What do YOU remember about this grand old house? It was built in 1883 after fire destroyed the Hamilton home. The KI Lime & Transport Co. owned it and it was leased as a church retreat at one time. Reports indicated it had 2 red stained glass doors, 14 rooms, 5 or 6 bedrooms and a maid's room, and 7 marble fireplaces. So many people wandered through it before it came down. Are there any pictures of the inside? Here's a tidbit - It was one of Sabra's servant girls that almost cost Dr. Fann the election in the first election of the newly formed Village.
Since this year our displays will feature sport fishing and ice fishing, our Annual Meeting guest speaker will be Tory Gabriel, from Sea Grant/OSU who will talk about The History of Lake Erie Fishing. He is part of the research teams studying Lake Erie and will have current information to share as well.
A little about MR. TORY A. GABRIEL - Tory is the Extension Educator with the Ohio Sea Grant Program, The Ohio State University. He has worked Stone Lab as a Biological Field Station Assistant. He grew up in Lancaster, OH (just south of Columbus) and graduated from Bloom-Carroll High School. His field of research is Applied Fisheries & Life Science Education. His favorite thing about Stone Lab is that "the classes are inherently hands-on and field oriented, so they're a blast. Students can't help but be motivated and learn about the unique ecosystem around them."
And try your hand at Ice Fishing (without the ice) in our new interactive display.
This is Roy Erne showing off his stringer of fish.
