From a swampy forest, Hancock County grew to a hub of agriculture, industry and culture. The promise of free fuel and land brought numerous factories to Findlay. One, the Dalzell, Gilmore & Leighton Glass Company, left a lasting legacy of collectible glassware. The need to drain fields and presence of a ready supply of clay encouraged the growth of brick and tile factories in Rawson, Arlington, McComb and Findlay. Entertainment and culture arrived in many forms. Sam Reeves Park in Arcadia featured vaudeville shows, baseball games and amusement rides. At Findlay's Riverside Park, the Green Mills Dance Hall hosted everyone from the Glenn Miller and Count Basie bands to Naked Onion and Mixed Emotions. Join Teresa Straley Lambert as she presents the vanished heritage of mills, milking, masks, medicine and more.
