THE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION AT MARIET
TA, APRIL SEVENTH, 1888.
The Washington County Pioneer Association, as early as their annual meeting held April 7th, 1881, decided to undertake a Centennial Celebration of the first organized and permanent settlement of the Territory Northwest of the River Ohio, to be observed in Marietta, April seventh, 1888. Further attention was given to the subject at the ninety-fifth anniversary of the settlement, held April seventh, 1883, at which time Hon. George B. Loring delivered the leading address.
At the first meeting of the Ohio Archæological and Historical Society, held in Columbus, March 13, 1885, it was resolved, “That this Society will gladly participate in the proposed celebration to be held in the city of Marietta on the seventh of April, 1888, to commemorate the application of the principles of the Ordinance (of 1787) in the first permanent occupation of the soil of Ohio by systematic colonization."
An invitation was extended by the Washington County
Pioneer Association, at the annual meeting on April 7th, 1886, to the Ohio Archæological and Historical Society to hold their annual meeting at Marietta on April seventh, 1888, instead of at the usual time at Columbus. This invi. tation was accepted by the Society at its meeting February 24th, 1887.
In making their preparations for the celebration, the Pioneer Association received a most cordial and efficient support, not only from its own members but also from the people of Marietta and vicinity. The money to meet necessary expenses was raised, first — by certificates of membership of the Association, which were taken at $1 each, largely through the labors and influence of the ladies. The amount realized from this source for expenses was $1,050.54. Second — a guarantee fund amounting to $2,000 was subscribed by a number of gentlemen. The total expenses were $1,960.00, which were paid by first applying all the funds of the Association arising from memberships, and then by a draft of 50 per cent. on the guarantee fund, which provides for the balance of expenses and for the publication of proceedings and addresses.
Preparations were made for the accommodation and entertainment of the Ohio Archæological and Historical Society; and Thursday evening, April fifth, and all of the sixth were assigned to the business and appropriate exercises of the Society. The several members were notified and invited to attend, a large number of whom were present to participate in the proceedings of the interesting occasion.
