Over the past week, we have been previewing this weekend’s Mohican Wildlife Weekend. Today, attention turns from all things nature-related to Richland County’s past, as next Saturday and Sunday bring RichHistory Weekend. We will be sharing the schedule of events and a look at individual attractions this week.
Today, we launch our RichHistory Weekend coverage by sharing a list of 1812Blockhouse posts over our own nine month history that featured people or places from days gone by.
