The year 2013 heralds the 250th anniversary of Chestnuthill Township, which at its inception also included Eldred, Polk and Ross townships. To celebrate this anniversary, the Chestnuthill Township Historical Society will be having events all year long.

On Feb. 26, 6:30-8:30, we will be at Pleasant Valley High School's Night of Unity. Stop by our table to learn more about local history and future events.
