History Roundtable with Mike Gilbert

Mike Gilbert History Roundtable

It was our great pleasure to welcome back local educator Mike Gilbert for his fall series of lectures. This year's six Saturday sessions featured both local and national history. Audiences enjoyed learning more about President Abraham Lincoln and the Kennedy family, tales of the Black Swamp, and Sandusky Countians who were overcome with gold fever and made their way West. Thank you Mike for your time and excellent research that brought to life the lives of our national leaders and local residents. We look forward to 2016's History Roundtable series!
