>Beautification of Annie Oakley Birthplace Marker

>Last fall, Ed Gehret, of the Willowdell area decided to landscape the birthplace marker of Annie Oakley at his own expense. The marker which is about 1,000 feet west of the cabin where Annie was born is located in the side ditch on Spencer Road north of Versailles. What used to be a historical marker that could easily be missed is now a beautifully landscaped area that is pleasing to the eye. Many thanks go out to Ed for actively demonstrating his civic pride of Darke County’s famous daughter, Phoebe Ann Moses.
