Junior Historians Seek Speakers

The Junior Historians are looking for adult members to help them learn more about life in the past.

Do you have a skill you can show?  Do you have a story to share about an event that took place in Paulding County?  Is there a historic building or place in Paulding County that was special for you?  Bringing pictures will help the youth visualize what you talk about.

Can you give a short presentation about your childhood or something you wore or played with as a child?  If you can bring something for the youth to see and ask questions about, that would be great!

Do you have an ancestor who was one of Paulding County’s first settlers that you can tell about?
