Image For BARA/CRIST ALLIANCE OH

BARA/CRIST ALLIANCE OH

Item Description
BARA/CRIST ALLIANCE OH. According to local history, General Robinson, a railroad official from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, named this Ohio town "Alliance" in 1850. Known for a short time as "The Crossing," Robinson believed that Alliance was a better name since the nation's two major railroads intersected here. The name stuck, and in 1854, the communities of Williamsport, Freedom, and Liberty incorporated as the town of Alliance. In 1889, the Village of Mount Union was annexed and Alliance became a city. Not only did the railroads help form our community, they established Alliance as a city of industry. Even though the town has remained relatively small, with approximately 23,000 citizens in 1990, industry has played a vital role in the development of Alliance. Many citizens attribute the strong leadership of the town's governing body to its industrial growth. This pictorial compilation documents the growth of the railroad and the stores and factories located along these railroad routes. Even today, the availability of trains and the intersection of key lines in Alliance is important to manufacturers. About the Author Authors Craig Bara and Lyle Crist have assembled a charming and fascinating look at the early years of Alliance. Many of the photographs were taken from the extensive collection of the Alliance Historical Society, which has received numerous donations from generations of citizens. Authors Bara and Crist also rely on the vivid accounts of Alliance from friends and relatives who knew the town well. This collection of photographs and storytelling is a wonderful gift to pass on to future generations.

Image For BERLIN CENTER OHIO

BERLIN CENTER OHIO

Item Description
BERLIN CENTER OHIO. So named as a tribute to the first settlers' native Germany, Berlin Center carries forward a long-held tradition of Ohio farming and artisanship. From its origins as a wooded river region occupied by American Indians, to its eventual development as an agricultural and milling area, Berlin Center has always preserved a commitment to rural living and civic pride. Situated at the crossroads of State Routes 224 and 534, Berlin Center owes a great debt to advances in the rail and river industries. This eclectic community played host to Presidents Garfield and McKinley, and suffered devastation by both flood and fire. Through it all, fortitude carried the town forward to the residential and recreational center it is today. A five-member committee of the Berlin Center Historical Society, whose families have called the area home for several generations, offer an authentic glimpse of the region as it has evolved over the course of a century. Join the authors for an intimate portrait of the area's development, from the milling industry that formed the foundation of the township, to the 1938 Flood Control Act that re-routed the flow of the Mahoning River, to the schoolchildren who shaped the community as they grew to adulthood. About the Author The nearly 240 images contained in this book are intended to provide not a detailed history, but rather a glimpse into this largely self-sufficient farming community and its inhabitants. It is the authors' hope that the book will give readers insight to the Berlin Township of the past, and serve as a reference source for future generations.

Local farmers also came to Paris to do business, worship in Paris�s churches, and absorb the latest news. The legacy of this village and its surrounding farmland lives on here in photographs, artifacts, and descendents of early settlers.

MEITER BIRD IS THE WORD

Item Description
MEITER BIRD IS THE WORD: AN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE ON THE NAMES OF NORTH AMERICAN BIRDS. More than 900 species of birds are known from North America, an avifauna made up of native year-round residents and seasonal migrants, modestly enhanced by introduced exotics and neighboring vagrants. Bird Is the Word is an unequalled compilation of the names of almost 800 of those birds and the record of how, when, where, and by whom those names were created and became parts of the history and science of North America's avifauna. This book is made up of three parts. Part I provides an introduction to the discovery and recording of North American birds by Europeans and to the scope and structure of avian taxonomy. Part II, which consists of 26 chapters and makes up most of the book, is devoted to the names of the individual species and the historical and cultural context of those names. Part III includes three appendixes, the largest of which introduces more than a hundred naturalists and other persons who participated searching for, finding, recording, naming, describing, or illustrating the birds of North America. Bird Is the Word is a rich, and readily accessible, collection of information about finding and naming the birds of North America. It is much more than a reference book; it is a journey of discovery that will enrich the reader's birding experience. About the Author Gary H. Meiter is a life-long resident of northeastern Ohio who has held an appreciation of nature, and especially birds and insects, from his earliest days growing up on his grandparent s farm. A college degree in Biology from Mount Union College and an education-focused career working in agriculture and natural history allowed continuous involvement with the outdoor world. Ten years ago Gary started building a data base that has now allowed completion of his first book Bird is the Word.
