New Website: Appeal For Donations!

At the moment, our big project is the creation of a new website. Our website is a valuable resource- schools rely on it for articles and maps, and researchers rely on it for family history. The website is currently on a very outdated platform which crashed two years ago. We need to preserve this valuable info, and fast!

OBHS received a $5000 grant for the new website, and we can match that amount, plus a bit more. We are launching an appeal to our supporters to raise the remaining balance of $2700. If you are able, please consider visiting our website and making a donation to the “Website Appeal” in the feature article. We are looking forward launching it this summer. Thank you for your support!
