An engaged audience participated in the Local History Quiz on Monday evening April 15. The presentation included numerous pictures of Liberty Township through the years and facts, both well-known and obscure. Special attention was given to the evolution of the Liberty Township school district from the one-room school era up to the formation of the Olentangy district. Excerpts from the interview with Don Bell in June 2022 were included to provide humorous insights into the uniqueness of the "Monument on the Hill."
