Description

Ever drive down a country road, see a green sign stating that a property is
permanently protected by Three Valley Conservation Trust and wonder what that is all
about?

Chad Smith, executive director of 3VCT, will explain when he speaks on “Preserving Our Rural Landscape” at the 56th t annual Salute to the Pioneers at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 19, at MetroParks of Butler County’s Indian Creek Church and Burial Ground in Reily Twp.

Smith assumed the directorship of the land preservation group in 2017 after spending
16 years with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

More than 22,000 acres are already protected from suburbanization by the Oxford-based
organization, including several farms near the historic church, and the number of
property owners signing easements is growing.

Pineridge Partners Judy and Warren Waldron will provide old-time music. A social
hour featuring homemade treats and punch will follow the program.

Sitting a knoll above Indian Creek Road, Indian Creek Church was organized in 1810. In 1829, when the congregation outgrew its log building, members built a new one, using handmade bricks fired on the site.

Now a part of MetroParks of Butler County, it is one of the oldest standing churches in
Ohio.

Visitors to the burial ground can see old tombstones that tell the history of the pioneers
who settled the area. Among the graves is that of Thomas Boone, cousin of Daniel
Boone.

The annual event is free and open to the public.

For more information or complete directions to the church, located at 3000 Indian Creek
Road, Oxford, Ohio 45056 call MetroParks at 867-5835.
