UTICA — The Utica Historical Society has invited John Crissinger to be a guest speaker Sunday, June 30, at 2:30 p.m. at the Hufford House Museum carriage house, 45 N. Main St., Utica.
The presentation revolves around the birth and growth of the Ohio Native Heritage Archive at the Ohio State-Newark and Central Ohio Technical College campus. The Adena and Hopewell mound builder cultures constructed an earthen mound complex in Newark, that is unique in the world. Over the past decade the university has invested energy and resources into the mounds, so much so that the complex is under consideration to be granted World Heritage status. The ONHA is a component of that effort and allows the library to become one of the players in that effort. The public is encouraged to come hear and see our local world come to life in this exploratory session revealing how they, too, may be able to simulate this in their own local area!
Crissinger has worked as a librarian for Ohio State-Newark/COTC for 15 years. He teaches Human Geography and World Geography as adjunct for Ohio State-Newark and the Geography of Israel for the Messianic Studies Institute.
