Area residents were able to take a trip back in time this past weekend to September during the War of 1812.

Greentown Preservation Association President William E. Jones says the Greentown Gathering marked the bicentennial of the burning of the former Delaware Indian village north of Perrysville in Ashland County and the attacks on settlers' cabins.

Special guests at the commemorative ceremony were Michael and Ella Pace, representatives of the Delaware Indian Tribe of Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

Jones says the day was spent by many reflecting on the past, pondering the future, meeting new friends, perhaps heal some old wounds and mend some new bridges.
