Greenfield History Day - Part 1

On Saturday, I attended the Greenfield History Day, sponsored by the Greenfield Historical Society, in Highland County, Ohio. I recently became a member of the society due to my family roots in Greenfield.

The society occupies five buildings at the corners of Jefferson and McArthur Streets near downtown Greenfield. All the buildings house historical museum articles with a Highland County/Greenfield background.

The first building I visited had a covered wagon, an old cream separator, and a 1938 Ahrens-Fox Fire Engine made in Cincinnati. There were many other items there, but these are the ones I photographed. The gentlemen who showed me around was not clear on the year of the fire engine, but I took a closeup picture of the nameplate with model number and patent number and researched it when I got home to find the actual year.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of my adventure tomorrow.
