Moments & Memories


Categories: ,


Marion County celebrated the bicentennial of its founding in 2020.  As part of the activities, 366 snippets of local history were posted daily on social media, shared on radio, and printed weekly in the Marion Star newspaper as “Moments & Memories.”  

The snippets covered a wide range of topics including insights into the history of the villages and communities of Marion County. Other topics included agriculture, business, education, entertainment, healthcare, industry, religion, sports and more. All 366 snippets, many with expanded information, are collected in this publication.

The publication, which is author Randy Winland’s fourth book featuring Marion, Ohio, contains more than 275 photographs, several in full color, on 180 pages in a 9.25” x 6.5” format. All proceeds from the sale go to benefit the Marion County Historical Society.
