On Founder's Day June 19, 2010, The Reily
Historical Society opened it's doors of the new
museum from 2:00-4:00 to the public. Everyone
was impressed by the great renovation and the
things inside that we have already
accumulated. We need many more things to
share with the community. If you have any Reily
antiques, pictures, household items, furniture
etc. that you would like to donate, or loan, for
display, please let us know.
We post requests from people who email the
website for information on their family history. It will
be useful to obtain any pictures, and information
that our members or the community may have for
these people. Anyone wanting to post a request
email us at:

Center. Oxford resident Marjorie Bowers
presented "Remembering Caroline Scott Harrison:
Oxford's First Lady"
Ms. Bowers is a member of the Caroline Scott
Chapter of the Daughters of the American
Revolution and has written a book about Caroline
Scott Harrison who married Benjamin Harrison in
1853. Ms. Harrison was First lady from 1889-1892.

informative slide presentation on this subject. She
brought to light things that Caroline Scott Harrison
as well as President Benjamin Harrison had
accomplished during those times to benefit us all
that were not acknowledged.
