Welcome to the first episode of the Grave Adventures of the Holmes County Library Ladies! Sit back, relax and enjoy the fun as the ladies take you on a virtual tour of Oak Hill Cemetery in Millersburg, Ohio. The genealogy enthusiast will find the important information provided helpful in making their visit a prosperous one filled the many genealogical gleanings. Historical accounts of some of Millersburg’s prominent citizens are sure to please any history buff. Turn up the volume (we had a little trouble with the wind), break out the popcorn and enjoy Part 1 of Oak Hill Cemetery! Looking for more Grave Adventures, visit the Library’s YouTube Channel.
This is our own Bonnie “Poulson” McKelvey. She is sitting in the libary when it was located under the courthouse.
The Holmes County Library first opened its doors in the basement of the Court House on December 7, 1928. There were only 500 volumes in the shelves and 100 residents registered to use the library. The library was moved to the building where the Board of Education now inhabits on June 22, 1975.
Bonnie works at the Central Library in Millersburg.
