Student Projects

These projects are the work of Sinclair Community College students who have taken History 218, The History of Ohio, with Professor John Weaver. New projects will be added to this web site as they are completed.The topics covered will include the stories of people, places, and events from throughout Ohio, but many will focus specifically on the history of Dayton and the surrounding Miami Valley region of southwest Ohio.
