Town Tours & Village Walks: Village of Sadsburyville Supper Lecture & Armchair Tour

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Located on U.S. Business Route 30 about five miles west of Coatesville, the settlement began as early as 1729, but it did not grow until 1794 when the first macadamized road in the country was laid through the settlement. Soon afterwards, Sadsbury Hotel was a welcome stop for turnpike travelers. Sadsbury may have been named for Sudbury in the county of Suffolk, England. The early settlers were a mixture of Friends from England and Scotch-Irish Presbyterians. Images and stories will transport you back in time. Weather permitting, a guided stroll of Historic Yellow Springs will be offered afterward.
