The long-anticipated Owen County Family History Book was released Thursday by the Owen County Historical Society. The hardcover book, over 288 pages with hundreds of photos never before seen by the public, covers the history of many prominent Owen County families, churches, clubs and schools.
Owen County Historical Society President Jeannie Baker said she can wait to start turning the pages.
“We’ve waited a long time for this,” Baker said. “I am going to curl up somewhere warm and read it straight through.”
