EHA Needs Area Year Books
EHA needs your help! The Elyria Historical Association is attempting to establish a complete collection of school year books from Elyria High, Elyria Catholic, Elyria West, Open Door Christian and First Baptist Christian. We are accepting yearbook donations (non-returnable) at The Lorain County Historical Society, 509 Washington Avenue, Elyria. The office is in the basement of The Hickories and is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.

These books will be available for reference, and may be borrowed for display during class reunions. Photo displays will be created featuring each schools' teams, clubs, bands and societies. These displays, using school colors, will be featured periodically in downtown storefront windows.

We are requesting help from high school graduating class members to assist EHA in selecting photographs for the creation of these displays. Anyone interested in helping with these displays, please call 440-322-3341.

The Elyria Historical Association is actively seeking new members. For additional information please contact the Lorain County Historical Society at 440-322-3341.
