1 Greene County, Ohio: Past and Present
Arthur R. Kilner
(1997), 2008, 5x8, paper, index, 384 pp, Heritage Books
Compiled from a wealth of personal knowledge and a series of articles Mr. Kilner wrote for the local newspaper, this book is the be-all and end-all of county histories! Art Kilner, a private investigator by profession, has gathered together an astounding amount of material about every aspect of Greene County history. The old railroad town and county seat, Xenia, figures prominently in this work. Discover through this series of essays and photographs the history of the county's churches, schools, covered bridges, cemeteries, historical markers, hotels, banks, opera houses, courthouses, stores, factories, mills, dairies, abandoned businesses, festivals, historic homes, log houses and Indian burial mounds. A series of short biographical sketches remembers the "People who made a difference." A complete listing of teachers in Greene County, 1800-1900, and the schools in which they taught, is a valuable resource for family historians. (Greene County was the destination of thousands of immigrants, especially from Germany and Ireland, in the 1800s.) There is also a brief physical description of the cities, towns and villages of Greene County, and a discussion of the origin of Xenia street names. Fires, floods and tornadoes have devastated various parts of Greene County, but the people have always been able to rebuild their lives. Writers, poets and underworld scoundrels alike have called Greene County their home. If you still haven't found a topic that interests you, try reading the report on the provenance of the abandoned outhouses that still dot the county. This volume is a wonderful keepsake for anyone who has ever visited or lived in Greene County. Lavishly illustrated with approximately 150 photographs and a county map; includes an everyname index.
