My Mother - Grace Shively Ehresman will be 102 on July 3rd. She has always lived in Portage County so is enjoying looking through the book. We both live in Ravenna for many years now. Thank you for making this available with all the info and pictures in it.
The book is a real treasure! I have thoroughly enjoyed the pictures and reading about all the history that has literally come to life in this book.
Process for order and delivery were great. My sister-in-law had provided many family photos for the publication.
I am thoroughly enjoying seeing and reading about our history, thanks to this handsome book. Photos of the various Main Streets, as they were over a century ago, are fascinating. I remember a few as a child and as the book title suggests, "Memories" long forgotten have returned, and I would recommend this book for anyone!
