Waking Tour of Downtown Powell
It started as a beautiful summer evening for a stroll through downtown Powell with Sherry Carmichael but the weather had other plans. A storm rolled through about half way through the walk forcing a quick return to the Martin Perry House. Sherry finished her narration of Powell history in the meeting room followed by tours of the house, refreshments, and pleasant conversation.
Irena Carpenter's Journal - A Woman's Perspective on Traveling to the Ohio Territory
Sherry Carmichael Portrays Irena Carpenter
This recorded program of historical fiction, developed for the Delaware County Historical Society, tells the story of Irena Carpenter, wife of Nathan Carpenter, the first white family to settle in the county in what is now Liberty Township. Sherry portrays Irena Carpenter, who came here with her husband and 10 children in 1801. She presents a woman's perspective of coming to the wilderness of the Ohio Territory. Sherry wrote the script for the video and portrayed Irena. The story is based on documented facts, where available, and incorporates plausible guesses where the information is not known.
