Background on the Memory Room fundraiser
The McGuffey Memory Room is supported by a group of McGuffey residents interested in the community’s history.

It contains the ordinances and council minutes starting in 1896 when McGuffey became an incorporated village.

“We have collected several item that pertain to the onion wars from the 1940s,” said Carter.

“We are working to rebuild our village up and funds generated from the August event will go toward the landscaping of the village office/post office."

“We are working toward bringing back our Marsh Day Festival and other events of the past,” said Carter.
