Annual Meeting April 9

Dr. Grupenhoff

    In the late 1990's, Dr. Grupenhoff, a retired college professor, became interested in his German heritage and family genealogy.  He found his roots in Osnabrueck, Germany, which he has visited numerous times.  In his research he soon came to realize that many Germans in Ohio came from this northern Germany region.

    More than 125 people heard about the migration in the mid-1800's of German immigrants from this northern Germany region to Cincinnati and to the  Auglaize County towns of Minster, New Bremen, and New Knoxville.  At one point he asked his audience to look at the palms of their hands.  "Fortune tellers look into your hand to tell you the future.  Your hand is a memory book, the legacy that links you to your ancestors.  All of them are alive at this moment.  They are present in your body.  You are the continuation of these people.  Keep us close.  Keep us alive.  Don't let us disappear,'" he said.

 Purpose

In the Spring of 1984, the New Knoxville Historical Society
was formed to "preserve items, sites and information of
historical value pertinent to the Village of New Knoxville
and Washington Township."

The object of the society is to discover, collect, preserve,
restore and acquire, by purchase or gift, any historical
objects, records, articles or other memorabilia relating to
New Knoxville and the Auglaize County area.  It will publish
books and other printed materials and maintain accurate
records of all memorable events and historical celebrations
relating to the progress and history of New Knoxville.

On-Going Brick Project

Our Memorial Brick Monument and Walkways will be a lasting memorial for our future generations.  This project is to help with maintenance and other New Knoxville Historical Society projects.  Add a brick to be engraved in memory of a family member or special event.
