Wood County Living History Day

History comes alive as local residents portray citizens interred in the Wood County Pauper's Cemetery

History comes alive as local residents honor those buried at the Wood County Paupers' Cemetery with first-person interpretations of administrators and residents affiliated with the Wood County Infirmary. 2019 honorees were chosen because of the Wood County Historical Museum’s exhibit "For Comfort & Convenience: Public Charity in Ohio by Way of the Poor Farm."

This event is made possible with support from:

BG Kiwanis Exchange Club BG Portage Center Arbor Gleaners 524 Delphos Granite Works Montessori School of Bowling Green Wood County Genealogical Society Wood County Historical Society

This program was funded in part by a grant from the Frisch Family Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation.
