Tippin to talk Portland Mills, Hamrick Station, Oakland Thursday at PCM

Monday, July 22, 2019

Putnam County historian Larry Tippin’s popular small-town series, “Rediscovering Putnam County: Tiny Towns and Vanished Villages,” will continue Thursday, July 25 at the Putnam County Museum, 1105 N. Jackson St., Greencastle.

The 6:30 p.m. program is free and open to the public.

In the latest installment of the series, Tippin will be talking this month about Portland Mills, Hamrick Station and Oakland.

Each month’s talk encompasses a place or places in each tier of Putnam County townships, north, central and south.

As always, Tippin will talk about the research he’s done in establishing where some places once stood, what happened there and who lived, worked and traded in that location.

For more information, persons may contact the Putnam County Museum at 653-8419 or email info@putnamcountymuseum.org.
