Join us for a reception honoring our Vets of the Vietnam era. This is an opportunity for Veterans and their families to meet others in the community who served at that time and to see the Library's Tribute Display to these Vets.
The brutal murder of Richard Jennings in December of 1818 gained national notoriety. Five local people plotted to murder Jennings over a disputed parcel of land. A quick unraveling of the conspiracy led to their arrest, and future President Martin Van Buren assisted in prosecuting the case. Two of the men ended up in prison and two faced the hangman before a crowd of almost 20,000. Author Michael J.
