The Speaker Series returns in September with Andrew Richmond. From simple log cabins to Gilded Age mansions, from wagons to locomotives, and from pioneer settlements to booming urban centers, Ohio’s first one hundred years was an age of progress. Inspired by the serial podcast “A History of the World in 100 Objects,” this lecture will tell the story of Ohio’s first century, from the first legal settlement in 1788 to the the celebration of the Northwest Territory centennial in 1888, through ten cultural artifacts. These artifacts represent individuals, movements, and moments in time, and they can be assembled into an exciting narrative Ohio’s early years
