WHCS president, Sam Lattuca, gave a 1.5 hour program on the early history and formation of Williamson County and Marion Thursday evening, May 18, 2017 at the Marion Carnegie Library. Lattuca’s program covered early native American cultures, French and British occupation as well as the process that the county went through in getting formed. A few of the topics discussed were crime in Williamson County, the growth of coal mining and its role and how alcohol and the temperance movement shaped the county in its early years.
Also discussed were the types of birds and animals that used to be found here in pioneer times that we no longer see today.
