The Auglaize County Historical Society announces the debut of a video tour of “The Architecture of Wapakoneta” on Wednesday, May 21, at 7 pm on the Auglaize County Historical Society Facebook page. The program was created by Carrie Knoch, Director of Achievement for Wapakoneta City Schools. The event is open to the public.
States Historical Society administrator Rachel Barber, “We had contacted the school system about providing content for students during the hiatus. Wapakoneta Schools’ art teachers expressed interest in information about architectural styles found locally. Using photographs and descriptions provided by the Society, Carrie created, edited, and narrated this video, and has arranged this Watch Party, a first for the Historical Society. Since May is National Historic Preservation Month, we thought that folks might be interested in learning about the styles of architecture found in Wapakoneta’s houses.”
Knoch provides the directions for participating in Wednesday’s event: Log in into Facebook and navigate to the Auglaize County Historical Society Facebook page just before 7. (Access may also be gained through https://www.facebook.com/AuglaizeCountyHistory.) At 7, you will see the announcement of the Watch Party. Click on that image to join the event.
