This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Publication: This Week News Article Title: Authors of local history book found some surprises Author: Kevin Parks Date: 10/15/08 The co-authors of a new book on the history of Grove City both encountered some revelations in their research, although one has lived here all her life and the other, a nine-year resident, is viewed by natives as a newcomer. "Images of America: Grove City" by Janet Shailer and Laura Lanese is the newest local history tome from Arcadia Publishing of Mount Pleasant, S.C. "With more than 3,000 titles in print and hundreds of new titles released every year, Arcadia has extensive specialized experience chronicling the history of communities and celebrating America's hidden stories, bringing to life the people, places and events of the past," according to the back page of the Grove City volume. Charged with bringing the past to life for people living in the present as well as preserving it for future generations were Shailer, a Grove City native who can trace her mother's side of the family roots in the community back to 1848, and Lanese, a lawyer by trade and already co-author of another book, "Game of My Life," about Ohio State University football. Her husband, Mike Lanese, played wide receiver for the Buckeyes from 1982-85. Shailer, a one-time high school correspondent for The Record and former editor of the rival Southwest Messenger, said that one of the things she kept thinking about during her research was just how much fun it would have been to live in Grove City in, say, 1926. Beulah Park had just begun offering thoroughbred racing three years earlier and the dog track, which would provide Grove City High School sports teams with a nickname and which was shortly shut down by state officials, had just opened. The Interurban streetcar line was running to Columbus and farm families came flooding into town on Saturday nights. "That particular year you had thousands of people coming to Grove City on a daily basis," Shailer said. "You had all kinds of things going on here in Grove City, a little village at the time. "How exciting that must have been for them." Laura Lanese, who said all lawyers are fascinated by history - perhaps it's that reliance on precedents - was initially intrigued to find out why so many of the city's streets have the names they do. Early settlers and pioneering families provided some of the names while others, Stringtown Road, for example, come from local quirks. The members of a music group lived along what was once a dirt road, according to Lanese. "What really struck me was how important location was , how it developed based on its location," Lanese said. This was true when a path hacked from felled trees led the first settlers to what would become Grove City, it was even more significant when Harrisburg Pike was created and is still even more the case as a result of Interstate 71 and the Outerbelt, Lanese pointed out. The two women said they enjoyed their collaboration, with each taking five of the 10 chapter headings. "It was very smooth," Lanese commented. "Laura was the ideal partner to do this with," Shailer said. "I think we were kind of lucky in finding each other a couple of years ago," she added. "We did this project because we really love Grove City, not to be trite. I think it was kind of a needed thing." "It really is a gift for this community," Lanese said. "Image of America: Grove City" includes 217 historic photos out of a collection at the Grove City Library that has grown to nearly 1,000 scanned images, a collection that has grown in part due to Shailer and Lanese encouraging people to participate in the "Attic to the Archives" project. The book costs $19.95 plus tax and a packet of historic postcards is also available for $7.99. These will be available from several Town Center Merchants, at t. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: As part of the Northwest Territory, the land encompassing Grove City served as payment to war heroes Gen. Daniel Morgan and Col. William Washington, a distant relative of George Washington, for their Revolutionary War service. They in turn sold this land, and in 1803, the region’s first pioneers, Hugh Grant and his wife, Catherine Barr, settled close to what is now downtown Grove City. In 1852, Grove City founder William F. Breck laid out the town plat and helped incorporate the village in 1856. Grove City remained a small farming village throughout the 19th and much of the 20th century, despite its proximity to the fast-growing capital city of Columbus. While the beginning of the 21st century has brought dramatic growth, Grove City continues to hold on to its vibrant, small-town character through its Roaring Twenties–era Thoroughbred racetrack, its picturesque town center, and the numerous educational activities hosted by the Southwest Franklin County Historical Society.

About the Author: Janet Shailer is a Grove City native who can trace her family’s roots back to 1848. She is the former editor of the Southwest Messenger newspaper and has authored a children’s book on Grove City. Laura Lanese, a relative newcomer, is a former attorney and coauthor of a book on Ohio State University football.
