The Fayette County Genealogical Society will open its new season on Monday, March 20 at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of the Carnegie Public Library, 127 S. North St. in Washington C.H. The meeting is open to members and to the public, and will feature an interactive program entitled, “Fayette County History, A Conversation,” which will be presented and coordinated by Donald “Don” Moore.
Moore will be sharing some significant and perhaps not so well-known history concerning the early settlers of Fayette County, such as Cherry Hill on Route 38 as displayed in the photo with this article. Did you know there was another Cherry Hill other than the school in Washington Court House and it has to do with court?
Come to the meeting and find out more about this Cherry Hill and other history you might not know about Fayette County. Those attending are encouraged to bring and share their stories about the history of Fayette County. It will be a conversation of our history. Please enter the library through the doors on the Catholic church side.
Don Moore, a history buff, served the Washington City Schools for many years as a teacher, counselor and administrator from 1955 to 1997. He earned both his bachelor and master degrees from Miami University. He served as secretary of the Fayette County Historical Society for 32 years.
