Marion’s famous madam, Lizzie Lape of the White Dove on West Church Street is found in this fascinating, well researched book.   Author Debra Lape was interviewed on NPR Radio’s Sound of Applause with Dee Perry.

One thought on “Welcome to Your Past”

  1. My husband found a steel plate which was attached to two steel beams in a building in Altoona, PA. Its imprint is, “Built by Marion Steam Shovel Co. Marion, Ohio Shop Number 1878”. It is 10” wide, 23” long, ½” thick and is 22 pounds. He was wondering if you and/or anyone you might know would be interested in purchasing this for your historical archives? We are also contacting the Historical Construction Equipment Association and the Historical Society in Leroy, NY.
