Event Detail

HAUNTED CORNERS: THE MANY LEGENDS OF MURDER CREEK  Free Akron Event! New Akron Event!

Date: April 25, 2019 ¦ Time: 7:00 PM

By popular demand, Mark Saglian is doing a second presentation for those who could not attend the first or were turned away due to lack of seating. There is perhaps no greater mystery in Akron lore than how the stream that winds its way through the Town of Newstead got its name. Researcher and storyteller Mark Saglian will explore several origin stories and examine the most widely accepted version, Uriah Cummings’ account, published in 1906 and titled “The Haunted Corners”.

Refreshments 6:30 pm  Program at 7:00 pm
