The Pendleton County Public Library has been given the honor of displaying artifacts recovered by Northern Kentucky University from the Parker Academy in Clermont County, Ohio. We will be displaying the artifacts over the next several weeks. Come in and see the wonderful display Dr. Sharyn Jones has created for us.
"The Parker Academy, a self-contained educational institution founded in 1839, represents the first school in Ohio, and possibly the country, to offer gender and racial equality-based education in the same classroom between 1839 to 1889. Our work is situated within a larger transdisciplinary approach initiated by Northern Kentucky University (NKU) among historians, geographers, and anthropologists (archaeology and ethnography) which began with preliminary archaeological and archival research in the spring of 2015."
