Costco to Host Book Signings for Local Authors

Debbie Mills and Margo Warminski will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

 

Greenhills, from local authors Debbie Mills and Margo Warminski with the Greenhills Historical Society, boasts more than 200 vintage and modern images chronicling the growth and change of this Ohio community.

 

Greenhills is an American treasure. It is one of only three "model" greenbelt towns built during the Great Depression by the New Deal's Resettlement Administration, designed to move working people out of crowded cities and into new, well-planned communities in the suburbs.

 

Construction began in December 1935 and the first families moved there in 1938. Greenhills featured schools, churches and stores within easy walking distance. The community was designed with wonderful amenities, such as walking paths, green spaces and community and recreational facilities. In hard times, when many struggled with crowded, decrepit housing, Greenhills offered affordable, well-built homes with the latest conveniences. When one-third of the country was out of work, many men were employed in the planning and building of Greenhills. Images of America: Greenhills serves to honor the historical uniqueness of the landmark plan that created and defined the area.
