The Ross County History Depot is a project to supplement the local Social Studies curriculums with materials and resources to tie local historical events to state and national events. It is through this program, that Ross County students will gain knowledge and an appreciation of Ross County’s historical significance. The ultimate goal is to create a sense of pride in their community within students which will make them good caretakers of our historical heritage in the future.
Local history materials are plentiful, however collecting that information and turning it into classroom ready presentations and other instructional materials can be very time consuming for the classroom teacher.
Much of the material on the website has been uploaded in PDF format. These can be reproduced or shown on the overhead. The PDFs have been reduced in size so as to not overload the blog site. This often distorts graphics somewhat. If you would like a higher quality copy of the PDF please contact us on the blog and a higher quality PDF can be sent to you. *This site is best viewed on a desk or laptop at 75%.
