             Giles-Richards Watering Trough                  Clean-up and Replacement Sign







 Use "Contact Us" Page for Questions  



 Sadly, in September 2016, the Ohio Historic Sign for the Watering Trough took a direct hit from a vehicle. The cast bronze sign is in many pieces and needs to be replaced. This was the second break for the sign and therefore it cannot be repaired.


A new replacement sign and post costs $2200 


Through our fundraising campaign, we have received:

November 2018           RUMPKE  COMMUNITY FUND                       $500 Grant

February 2019              COLERAIN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE        $500 Grant

March 2019    BUTLER RURAL ELECTRIC Community Connection   $500 Grant

September 2019      Individuals donated                                         $260                                        

                                                                        Funds still needed: $440


Once funds are received a replacement sign can be installed within 30 Days.
