Program Announcement: Early Businesses That Are No Longer Around

As our needs and desires change, and as technology advances, businesses come and go in response to these changes. Some businesses become obsolete; some just move on to different things. Join Archives Librarian Ron Davidson for a review of a few of the businesses that flourished in the past in Sandusky but are no longer here.

Part One: Industry. On Saturday, October 16, at 2:00 p.m. we will discuss factories and industrial businesses from the 19th and early 20th Centuries that are no longer here, with views of images and documents from the Library’s Archival Collections. Learn about businesses, such as the Sandusky Tool Company, the Jackson Underwear Factory, breweries, the ice industry, and others.
