Historians from throughout Washington County will open exhibits
featuring history and unique features of their towns and villages at a
history fair this Saturday, Oct. 26.

The event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., will be held
at Granville Elementary School.

Topics will include 1800s postal service in the area, transportation
history, Underground Railroad history, Civil War connections and more.

Some specific programs include the Historic Mills of Washington County
at 11 a.m., the Postal Service in Washington County at 1 p.m. and How
to Become Your Own Genealogist at 2 p.m.

There will also be a special program by the Slate Valley Museum for
children entitled: “The Dream and the Reality: Immigration to the
Slate Valley” at 1 p.m. This presentation will give children the
opportunity to dig into a trunk of costumes and become an immigrant
moving to Washington County.
