Cemetery tour planned
The seeing eye
HOWLAND HISTORICAL SOCIETY: The Howland Historical Society is holding a driving cemetery tour from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Cost is $5 per person, $10 per car. Maps and wrist bands will be available at each site and the Yellow House on the day of the tour. Each site will have two hosts with information on two to four different people or family interred at the cemetery. Each site tour will start on the hour and last 30-40 minutes, giving attendees time to get to the next site. You may do the tour in any order. The Pioneer Cemetery is on Mahoning Avenue NW behind what is now Akron Children’s Pediatric office at 661 Mahoning Ave. Howland Township Cemetery is one mile north of Howland Center on the east side of the road. The group will meet at the flag pole at the WWII memorial. The Seeley Cemetery is next to the Holiday Inn Express at 135 Highland Terrace Blvd. off state Route 46 across from the Eastwood Mall. Meet at the steps going up to the cemetery.
Stop at the Yellow House in between visits to the township and the Seeley cemeteries for some cider and Halloween cookies. The home is open for free tours from 1 to 4 p.m. and hikes with the naturalist, weather permitting.
GROUP TO MEET: Trumbull County Genealogical Society will hold its meeting 1 p.m. today at Mecca Community Church, 5920 Phillips Rice Road, Cortland.
