Wilhelm: More on Jacksons, Willow Hill and efforts to share insight into African American history Willow Hill concentrates on African American HistoryDr. Alvin Jackson, who served at the Community Health Services in Fremont in the late 20th century, says the Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center in Bulloch County, Georgia, aims to provide Americans with insight into the values of African American history and culture as related to American history and culture. Today, he said the center focuses on local, state and national African American history, but quickly pointed out “a lot of work is done in genealogy because a lot of African American people have lost contact with their history.” To help people reach into their own history, the center has a collection of more than 18,000 obituaries and is adding to the collection regularly. He continues to practice medicine part time and serves as president of the Georgian African American Historic Preservation Network.

The station’s capacious waiting room became one of Lake Geneva’s “social centers.”On Jan. 1, 1900, residents of Lake Geneva celebrated the first turn of a century in the city’s history.1 month ago Lake Geneva News
