Located at the corner of Silver Hill and Miller Roads, the hamlet of Marbletown was a rapidly growing community, when in 1825 the Erie Canal opened just a few miles to the north. Captain Joseph Miller plotted and laid out streets for his new community, Miller's Basin, which became Newark. Marbletown, Hydesville, and others stopped growing and reverted to the peaceful little rural communities.

The annual Fall Harvest Festival will be held at the Marbletown Schoolhouse this Saturday, October 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine.
The schoolhouse, built in 1876, and restored to the closing year of 1947, will be open, with vendors in locally-grown produce, crafts, and other seasonal items. We hope you'll come out and visit.

Take Silver Hill Road just South of Newark, off Rt. 88 east to Marbletown.
The event is sponsored by the Newark-Arcadia Historical Society. For info, please phone Fall Harvest chair Karen Watson, 331-1857.
