Open house held at Coshocton County Recorder’s office

IMG_1747COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Recorder’s Open House to honor the Century & Bicentennial Farm Families was held Wednesday, Sept. 24, from 6 to 7:30 pm. This project was begun to bring awareness to the program that was initiated by the Ohio Department of Agriculture in 1993. Coshocton County has a rich agricultural history, and the Recorder’s office wanted to honor that and those families that have received this distinction.

IMG_1749Two Coshocton High School art students, Katie Meddings and Hailey Rhodes painted the tree mural on the wall completely freehand. They did a remarkable job. The office then added pictures that it had received from the families and hung them on the branches of the tree.

There was a nice attendance for the event, including Cindy Shy from the State of Ohio Department of Agriculture, who is in charge of the Century & Bicentennial Farms Program.

Any farm family who may qualify for the program is invited to check out the website www.agriohio.gov/divs/cent_farms/ or contact the Ohio Department of Agriculture at [email protected]. You also may call 614-752-9817 to reach Shy. The Recorder’s office offers assistance to help families research ownership for the registration and get the copies of deeds that they will need. You can contact the Recorder’s office at 622-2817 for any further questions.
