COLERAINE HERITAGE DAY
Saturday, September 24
The weather was perfect for the 2016 Founders 5K Walk/Race. Participation was down from last year; which left this year’s Racers leaving with quite the haul!
Colerain Businesses are always generous. For the “After Race Raffle” Racers went home with over $925 in gift certificates and Swag Bags filled with pens, lanyards, water bottles, koozies and other goodies.
The Community Basket Raffle was a success with $277 made from just 13 baskets.
Profit from this year’s Heritage Day was $1119.03 – our best year!!
THANKS to all VOLUNTEERS. We can’t do this without you!
Mark your calendars now for next year’s Race. LAST Saturday of September (9/30/17)
This building, originally a Toll House and later used as a Post Office and General Store, is a small frame structure covered with board and batten siding.
Built in 1829, the Toll House was originally located on Banning at Blue Rock
(current home of White Oak Garden Center)
By 1879, the Toll House was being used as the Creedville Post Office and General Store.
In 1905, the Post Office was discontinued and the building was moved to another location in Colerain Township (Galbraith & Cheviot Roads). When it was moved, the front roof extension was removed, and the living quarters on the left side were demolished.
In 2002, The Coleraine Historical Society learned that the farm where the Toll House stood was being sold to a developer.
Coordinated by CHS Member LARRY SHAD,
The Coleraine Historical Society rescued the
Creedville Toll House and on a cold day in
January 2003, moved it to a “temporary” home.
Now some 14 years later the Creedville Toll House it is finally moving to a permanent home at Heritage Park in Colerain Township.
Some generous Colerain Businesses have pledged good and services to give the Toll House a new concrete foundation, a new metal Roof and stabilize the structure.
The Historical Society needs to pay the mover and buy and install signs.
We need your help.
Donations are needed to help move and preserve the Toll House.
