The Whitacre House Part 1
As I was getting things ready for the Missing Person's Vigil in Wellsville, I ran across this plaque, near the Gazebo. There are lots of interesting historical facts hidden on little memorials like this. The memorials themselves are usually hidden, like the one beside the Masonic Temple in East Liverpool or the one in front of the 1st NC Bank in Lisbon, beside the Lisbon Masonic Temple. Both talk about famous presidents who have been in this area, one of them being George Washington. Which one? You will have to go look. :)
The owners of this property told me they moved this plaque into their back yard, enclosed with a fence, and the citizens of Wellsville demanded their memorial returned, which was done, of course.
