Celebrating 200 Years of History in 2020


On the side bar, please click on the names of the Perry County historical regions which are located around the county.  

One will find additional photographs and research on each region.

The Bicentennial Committee is indebted to the Perry Historians for the courtesy of historical photographs and the utilization of a Perry County valued institution – the Lenig Library and Archives. The archives contain books, maps, manuscripts, materials, government records, microfilm and photographs of the history of Perry County.

In addition, many citizens and other entities have shared pictures and manuscripts and have given oral interviews.  To all who advance our knowledge of the past, the Committee expresses its appreciation.

The Perry County Bicentennial Committee is happy to be involved with the research and writing of much of the content of the history of Perry County. The committee has been instrumental in working with sponsors to procure and install the markers as shown in this Heritage Trail website.
