There’s an anniversary coming on Monday, May 23, that citizens are anxious to greet.
It’s the 150th anniversary of the official incorporation of the village of Archbold, which, in our humble opinion, is the greatest little town in the world. We have to admit we might be biased.
From what was once swampland, Archbold has grown exponentially. The spirit of the community influences people far beyond its borders.
Yet our community retains that hometown feel. People gather with friends at local restaurants, meet in friendly competition, and worship together.
Archbold has faced its share of tough times: major fires, floods, two world wars and other lesser conflicts, economic downturns, and tragic deaths.
Archbold also has much to celebrate: unbelievable industrial growth and expansion, outstanding schools and houses of worship, a beautiful downtown, local business owners who keep their buildings attractive and vibrant, parks that stay busy with youth and adult activities, and strong infrastructure.
Many hardworking citizens are responsible for making this community what it is today. Rest assured, Archbold stands on the shoulders of giants.
The future for our community looks bright. Archbold will be even better tomorrow.
