Owen Historical Society News: History from another perspective

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

They say that I am old. That is true; and yet I was not one of the first to gaze upon the land we know today as Owen County. It has been said that the McAfees were some of  the first white men to explore the area in 1773.They made camp at the mouth of Mill Creek where present day Perry Park stands.
When other families arrived the forests were cleared, cabins were erected; and soon on every farm those like me settled on the land; and in doing so we took our place in the annals of history.
