Last night we concluded our spring season Public Enemies: Hamilton’s Little Chicago Era & Its Consequences. It was great to see so many faces, new and old, crowding the Parrish Auditorium for Jim Blount’s spellbinding exploration of Hamilton in the age of rum runners and speakeasies. The Colligan History Project returns in September with another exciting season of events (about which, watch this space!) but meanwhile history enthusiasts need not despair.
Over summer we’ll keep you posted of historical goings-on in Butler County via our website and Facebook. One such event comes to our attention via the excellent HEY! Hamilton! website (well worth a look if you’re not yet familiar). Former city mayor and local history enthusiast Tom Nye will be leading free guided tour of Hamilton’s Dayton Lane Historic District, meeting Friday May 15 at noon (see link below):
