GPL Journeys through time with Todd Clemmons


GREENVILLE – All aboard at Greenville Public Library! Along with author Todd Clemmons, we’ll embark on a journey into the history of the Dayton & Union Railroad during its formative years. 

Journey Through Time will be held on Tuesday, February 20, at 11 a.m. in the third-floor conference room.

During this program, we’ll explore the stories and challenges that shaped this vital rail link and examine its impact on the local community. Attendees can expect a blend of historical storytelling, pictures of the trains and memorabilia of the railroad, and an opportunity to connect with the local heritage.

Todd Clemmons is a historian and the author of The Rails and Tales of the Dayton & Union Railroad: The Early Years. With a love for local history, he’s dedicated his efforts to uncovering this significant railroad story for Darke and Montgomery Counties.

“As a storyteller, my goal is to transport audiences to see the railroad as it unfolds and shed light on our community’s past,” Todd said. “This presentation is not just about the Dayton & Union Railroad, but Greenville’s role in making it happen.”

Todd’s book is now available for viewing in the GPL Genealogy Room. 

This is a free event, and registration is not required. For more information, contact Kelly at (937) 548-3915.
