The history beneath our feet
By Kim Sutton
President, John Paulding Historical Society
Eight days ago, I received an email from Arc of Appalachia Preserve System, a charitable nonprofit organization, who manages and stewards 14 preserves in Ohio. I signed up for their emails while on a camping trip to Paint Creek State Park. We had spent the day sightseeing and hiking trails in the area and we happened to run into the director, Nancy Stranahan, at the Highlands Nature Sanctuary. She and I hit it off immediately. Our love for nature and history evaporated any awkwardness or shyness that can occur when you start a conversation with a stranger.
