Trumbull County Historical Society Kicks Off Speaker Series

WARREN, Ohio – The Trumbull County Historical Society launches its 2018 Sunday Speaker Series at 2 p.m. on April 8 at the Kinsman House, the organization announced.

Dr. Katherine Durack, in partnership with the Upton Association, will present the lecture, “Ohio’s Role In Women’s Suffrage: Three Reasons to Celebrate Big.” Durack represents the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial, a nationwide organization dedicated to establishing a national memorial to honor suffragists by the 100th anniversary of the ratification of 19th amendment in 2020.

TCHS has held the Speaker Series for many years, but Executive Director Meghan Reed said that this year will be different. “There are many changes to the program this year. Due to a generous sponsorship from Paige & Byrnes Insurance, we’re able to bring speakers from across the country who are working on projects that tie into our local history.”

Reed also said that the program will no longer be held at the John Stark Edwards House, as it had been in the past. “All but two of the programs will be held at the Kinsman House, in partnership with the Warren Heritage Center,” Reed said. “It is one of our goals to develop partnerships with other local history groups to showcase the impact that history and historical preservation has on our community.”

“Paige & Byrnes Insurance is pleased to partner with the TCHS and its 2018 Speaker Series,” said Paige & Byrnes Insurance owner John Taylor. “We believe these programs will be entertaining and informative to all who attend.”

The Sunday Speaker Series will be held the first Sunday of every month, May through December. All programs are free, family friendly, and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
