FORT JENNINGS — Each year, the Ohio Historic Preservation Office recognizes achievements in historic preservation by presenting annual awards in two categories including the Awareness and Preservation Merit award. When Julia Wiley — who grew up in Fort Jennings — became a member of the Historical Society, she thought nominating the village’s Memorial Hall would be perfect. The awards will be announced in August.

The nomination was through an application process and could be based on a partial or full restoration. Wiley’s thought was if the hall was nominated and received the award, it would honor the whole community.

“Parishioners who haven’t been home for a while come back to visit and enjoy the good food and games and just reconnecting,” Schetter said. “I enjoy meeting everyone.”
