Historical Arts Committee
April 10, 1792, was a significant day in Clermont County's history. This was the day two cultures collided, one led by noted frontiersman Simon Kenton, and the other by a great leader of his people, Tecumseh. A full description of the battle is on the GRASSY RUN STORY tab. In 1988 a group of historians got together to plan a commemoration of the 200th anniversary of this battle in 1992. The goal was to make sure that this moment in history would be remembered by future generations. That goal was accomplished and now the Grassy Run Historical Arts Committee continues to preserve not only the history of this historical event but bring to life the pioneers who settled here and the efforts they put in to make this place their home. We help show what their lives were like and demonstrate some of the crafts and skills they needed to survive. We have our own rendezvous at the end of April each year as well as participate in other events, such as historical festivals and bicentennial celebrations. We also help with school programs when we can. We are a 501c3 organization dedicated to educating the public, especially children, about the history of this place we call home.
