Sam Ashworth, longtime Armco employee, teacher, graphic artist and president of the Middletown Historical Society, will focus on Armco Park: how it came about and what was there for Armco employees and the community.

This program is brought to you in partnership with the 50th Anniversary celebration at Miami Regionals’ Middletown campus.

Verity Traditions continues on October 13 at 6 p.m. when Alan Wise, local historian, author, photographer, and member of the Middletown Historical Society, shares his research on the 1910 West Middletown railroad disaster.

Verity Traditions connects community and campus with the traditions of Verity Lodge. These programs are free and open to the public.
