The city of Meansville will host History Night on Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Meansville City Hall. 

“Drop in from 6 to 8 p.m. to see what town looked like beginning in the early 1900s and see some of the industry and crops that were grown in the area,” said Janet Milby Minter. “We will also have some local pottery and military biographies of POW and MIA military from the Meansville area. Thank you to those who submitted family biographies and pictures. We hope you can join us!”

The event will include information on the founders of Meansville, how and when the city began, what stores and what businesses looked like over the years. 

“Similar items were displayed in 1976 for the American bicentennial, and on a smaller scale at one of our recent music festivals,” said Janet Minter. “Come visit your neighbors. All are welcome to attend. Family or individual biographies and photos are being collected as well as Meansville memorabelia. Biographies and photos may be placed through the door slot at Meansville City Hall.”

Meansville history biographies may also be emailed to cityofmeansville@bellsouth.net.

Local families are encouraged to bring members of younger generations to the History Night event. 

“School-aged kids can learn about crops that used to be grown in the area and what the buildings looked like years ago.” said Minter. “They will also learn about the railroad that came through Meansville and the various businesses in the  city in the early- to mid-1900s. They can also learn about pottery made in Meansville.”
