Henry County Historic Preservation meets

The Henry County Historic Preservation Commission held its October monthly meeting at East Grove Farms Winery on Wednesday, Oct. 21. Present were Cathie Schreiner, Mary Savage, Caroline Lehman, Faye Heartsill, Judy Rawson, Aaron Kimzey, Larry D. Roth, Joel Garretson, and guest Pat White.

Larry Roth announced that the Schantz House/Carpentry Shop in Wayland has passed the first round in the process of becoming placed on the National Register of Historic Places at the state level. A few amendments to the documents will be made before submitting to the National Park Service for final approval.

Progress has been made on the Rural Schools of Henry County book and the Commission has changed the timeline for publication to 2021 due to the amount of material to be edited and proofed and delays caused by the pandemic.

The next meeting will be held at the Henry County Courthouse on November 18, 2020 at 1 p.m.
