Program Announcement: Brown-Bag Lunch Series -- Moravians in Milan

Bring your lunch and join us in the Library Program Room (Terrace Level) as we explore topics in local history during our Brown Bag Lunch Series. The next session will be held on Wednesday, September 16, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The topic will be Moravians in Milan.

In the spring of 1804, Moravian missioner Sebastian Oppelt came up the Huron River, or Pettquotting to Native Americans, and settled in the area that eventually became the Village of Milan. Learn about the settlement, Moravian missionary work, Native American culture, and Milan's early history with Ann Basilone-Jones, Executive Director of the Milan Historical Museum.
