ONLINE – Bites and Bits of History
Youngstown as a Gretna Green

August 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Continuing in an ONLINE video format, our next Bites and Bits of History program for the Summer Series will debut on Thursday, August 19 at Noon, on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/…/UCDHqcfsLJNsV5s-bnahmTNA/videos.

Learn about why Youngstown was a destination for eloping couples from Pennsylvania in the early 1900s and how a whole little cottage industry sprung up around these hasty marriages!

Roslyn Torella, local author, will be our main presenter.
