History at Heartland Point

ORRVILLE — June 21 is the official start of summer — no matter what the thermometer reads — and Heartland Point has two remaining classes in the spring session.

The Axes That Built Wayne County will be Thursday, June 21, 6-7 p.m. Paul Locher, Wayne County historian and curator of the new Buckeye Agricultural Museum and Education Center, will share a collection of early axes and explain the significance of each in the opening of the wilderness and the region’s transformation to farming. Audience members can try their hand at hefting these formidable tools and experience what our pioneer forebears felt. Cost is $5.

The printed class schedule for the summer session will be inserted into the June 22 issue of OrrViews and will be available at Heartland Point.

The online class schedule is available now at www.heartlandorrville.com. Find class descriptions and convenient registration and payment options. Plus, learn more about the Heartland Education Community and its initiatives. Call 330-682-0200 or email heartlandpoint@gmail.com for more information.
