Presentation Topic: “Exploring Northern Ohio’s Oldest Village” About the time Stonehenge was new and work began on the pyramids of Egypt, local Native Americans were creating one of the first village settlements in northern Ohio. Hear about the exciting discovery of these settlements in Lorain County and lean about the remnants of clay house-floors and other remains that date to 4,000 years ago! This find tells us that local hunters and gatherers were much more settled than previously believed. Life was so good that the people stayed for several seasons and occupied this site for decades.
