The exhibit showcases the past and present of our town, one that is rich in history. Chillicothe was a crossroads where Native Americans congregated and white settlers passed through on their way westward. Today it is a town with many distinct features; a town of which to be proud.
Everyone is invited to enjoy the exhibit and meet the artists during a wine & tapas reception from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 8.
Chillicothe is a crossroads of geology, history and people. Before it was Ohio's first capital, this region of the heartland attracted Native Americans, trappers and tradesmen. The land is ripe with rivers, flora and fauna. This show gives a glimpse of the rich story of Ohio's earliest meeting place.
This exhibit was first installed at the Columbus Statehouse in May and was well received by the public and featured in the Columbus Dispatch. pARTners was asked to mount the show locally and is happy to present it here on the OU-C campus for the community.
