'Road to Remembrance' photograph   Save
Clinton League Memory Book
Description: Photograph showing nine women standing along the "Road to Remembrance," a designated stretch of the "River Road" (possibly Olentangy River Road) where members of the Columbus Federation of Women's Clubs planted trees. This effort was likely in honor of those Columbus soldiers who were killed during World War I. This image was included in a "Memory Book" compiled by Mrs. H. V. Cottrell, historian for the Clinton League (sometimes called the Clinton Welfare League) from 1938-1943. The book shows the development of the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, and records the history of the League. The Clinton League was a women's group founded in 1912 to promote child welfare and later general welfare in Columbus, but which was based in and primarily focused on the area of Clintonville.
