Weaver-Pettiford Exhibit at Marion Public Library
August 17 @ 9:00 am - November 30 @ 5:00 pm
Marion Public Library and Museum is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Weaver-Pettiford Family Reunions with a special exhibit. Learn about the amazing history of the Weaver settlement in Grant County. Originally known as Crossroad, the community was later renamed Weaver in honor of a prominent family. One of Indiana’s early black pioneer communities, Weaver reached its peak in the late 1800’s when the population reportedly reached 2,000.
