Hess is descended from some of the earliest settlers of Middletown. Always interested in history, he discovered among family belongings a number of glass slide negatives taken by one of his Showalter ancestors, many dating back to the 19th century. In 1987 he became part of the core group of interested citizens who founded the Middletown Fall Creek Township Historical Society.
The program will be held at the Historical Society building in Gazebo Park in downtown Middletown. Strawberries and cream will be available following the presentation.
