Dear Society members:
For the last six months, The Twinsburg Historical Society has been in negotiations with The City of Twinsburg for the sale of an 1873 Italianate Style house that was built by Moses Roach. The house sits right on Church Street, adjacent to The Congregational Church. Currently the Chamber of Commerce resides there and will stay there as well. The city stated that is was in a state on ill repair and they did not want to foot the bill.
This next council meeting, January 22nd, 2019, the ordinance to transfer the house to the society will have its final reading. So far, all council members have approved it. We do not anticipate any issues for this third reading. We have worked very diligently with the council to make this happen. With this being said, we need to show our support to council at this meeting. I will be there and would like to ask any member to please join me at the council meeting showing the community’s support to the council for helping us save this century home located right on the square. If you have any, please wear your Historical Society apparel.
We really need to thank the following individuals for their helping us in reviewing the damages and offering us some additional insight into the repairs. They were also instrumental in the documentation we presented to council.
James Mirgliotta, Forest City Erectors
James Karabec, former Mayor
Jim Turle, Turle Construction
Richard Bissell, Bissell Excavating and Trustee
Ed Ponter, Trustee
Dennis Stingerwald, local businessman
Thank you all for all of your support over the fifty-five years that the society has been in existence.
