We haven't done a history post in a while, so happy history Wednesday!

Margaret Hurlburt, a 1932 graduate of Harvey High School, was Painesville's most famous pilot. She began taking flying lessons at Willoughby Municipal Airport and taught high school English in Bettsville, Ohio, eventually substituting at Harvey also.

In 1943, Hurlburt joined the war efforts and became a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) of World War II. After the disbandment of the WASP in 1944, Hurlburt returned home, where she continued to pursue her dream of flying by participating in air races. In 1946, Hurlburt won the Cleveland National Air Races and was presented with the trophy by businessman Samuel Halle.

In 1947 in Tampa, Florida, Hurlburt set a new international womenโ€™s flight-speed record of 337 mph, besting the previous womenโ€™s record of 292.27 mph set by Jackie Cochran 10 years earlier. Hurlburt was dubbed โ€œQueen of the Air" and a three-day celebration called โ€œMarge Hurlburt Daysโ€ was held after the record-breaking.

Hurlburt later joined the Flying Tigers Air Troop. Unfortunately, on July 4, 1947, during an air stunt show in Decorah, Iowa, Hurlburt crashed into a cornfield in a borrowed AT-6 and was instantly killed. Her death made national headlines. Hurlburt is buried at home in Evergreen Cemetery in Painesville.

Want to help the monarch butterflies in Ohio? Participate in the annual milkweed pod collection!

๐Ÿฆ‹ Pick seed pods when they are dry and gray or brown in color. If the center seam pops with gentle pressure, they are ready to be picked
๐Ÿฆ‹ Collect pods in paper bags and mark the county where you picked the milkweed seed with the time and date. Please don't use plastic bags.
๐Ÿฆ‹ Store seeds in a cool, dry area until you can deliver them to the closest pod collection area (drop off bin at the Lake County Administration Lobby, 105 Main Street, Painesville)
๐Ÿฆ‹ Harvesting the pods from milkweed plants does not harm the current milkweed population! All milkweed pods collected will be processed by OPHI partners and the seeds will be used to establish new plantings to create additional habitat for the monarch butterfly in Ohio.

๐Ÿšจ Don't make it easy for them! ๐Ÿšจ Always lock your vehicle and remember to take your keys or key fob inside with you. Theft happens everywhere, make it a habit to lock it up

A friendly reminder regarding some vehicle thefts and thefts from vehicles in the area. We post this often as a reminder. Please try to make it a habit of locking your vehicle before you go to bed.

๐Ÿ”นClose all windows, lock your car, and take the keys. An unlocked car is an open invitation to thieves.
๐Ÿ”นClose and lock all windows and doors when you park.
๐Ÿ”นPark in a well-lit area if possible.
๐Ÿ”นNever leave valuables in your vehicle, especially if they can be seen from outside the vehicle.
๐Ÿ”นAlarm systems that disable the started or fuel systems are
effective against theft.
๐Ÿ”นInstall a hidden ignition switch.

Congratulations to the Uri Seeley House for it's official addition to the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom.

Uri Seeley was one of the most widely known original settlers of the area and a prominent Painesville abolitionist. He was one of the oldest members of First Congressional Church (on the Square) in Painesville and was known for his "fierce hatred of slavery, and his whole strength was exerted in the battle for its overthrow."
