It took 70 years for Lorain’s Admiral Ernest J King’s birthplace to be so recognized. With the co-operation with the City of Lorain and sister organizations, Charleston Village Society managed to do in 10 months what had not happened in decades of talking .

This project honoring the fallen from Iraq and Afghanistan , we believe, to be unique in Ohio.

The walk connects the very history of Lorain’s earliest maritime history to those of the contribution by her native son Admiral King with gardens along the way giving tribute to her sons of valor.

THE PASSING OF THE HAT !!!!

Captains hatcoll

IF YOU AGREE WE HAVE DONE WHAT WE SAID WE WOULD DO – IF YOU AGREE WE HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE PLEASE THINK ABOUT DROPPING AN AMOUNT IN OUR ‘CAPTAIN’S HAT’ – THE PROJECTS TAKE UPKEEP, AS MENTIONED IN WHAT IS NEEDED TO BE DONE TO THE TREE LAWN CARVINGS THIS SPRING. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL, THOSE 5 AND 10’S AND 20’S ADD UP

There will be no spaghetti dinners, steak fry or brunches, for our “fundraiser”. We will not add to your waistline but will gladly lighten your wallet. 100 percent of every donation goes to the projects as designated, we are a 501c3 .

This year we also have to not only continue with phase two of Eric Barnes Heroes Walk, The Charleston Pioneer Cemetery and the carvings at Settlers” Watch but Veterans Park is a disgrace and needs attention.

These projects all take money and manpower. If you can help with either a cash donation, in kind donation or blood sweat and humor please contact us

The 2006 Charleston Village Annual report can be found here http://www.loraincounty.com/charlestonlorai/feature.shtml?f=252

We raised the funds for the ” Archway Gates “ and had them made and installed for Charleston Pioneer Cemetery.

Stopped the importing of RSO’s for profit and one of the founding members of the Lorain Neighborhood Watch Council and more all with funding from the public , in kind donations and volunteers.

The annual report for 2007 found us even busier http://www.loraincounty.com/charlestonlorai/feature.shtml?f=292
researching the saving of Veterans Park in 2006– we found this now, City of Lorain, Charleston Village and Black River Township ( settlement) was actually going to celebrate its 200th anniversary. In order to keep record and history “straight ” we chaired and formed a Black River Bicentennial for August 2007- 140 volunteers and dozens of organizations came together. Proclamations speeches and all sorts of happening took place on that August Day, including the first of the carvings at Settlers’ Watch You can find photos of the events here:
