Stories of village elders paint a story of the village
The Guide to Yellow Springs, produced annually by the Yellow Springs News, is the village in a nutshell, rounded out with articles and essays on a unifying theme.
About a year ago we noted the number of villagers who are living vital and active lives well into their late 80s and 90s. Like many in our youth-obsessed American culture, we didn’t know much about our elders. So we embarked on a series, “Elder Stories,” in an attempt to learn more.
And learn we did. We found that in shining a light on the history of these longtime villagers, we were also shining a light on the history of Yellow Springs, its changes and challenges.
