The Clermont County Historical Society July meeting will be a Historical Tour to Georgetown to visit Ulysses Grant Boyhood Home and other Grant related sites on Saturday July 18. In the past few years the Ohio Historical Society (now called the Ohio History Connection) has made major improvements to the museum. For those who wish to carpool, we will meet at Harmony Hill, Williamsburg at noon. Those driving on their own, we will meet at the Boyhood Home on Grant Ave. at 1pm.

The meeting is free and open to the public.

If available we would like the following information: Location of barn quilt; Owner and contact information.
