WQLN PBS Spotlight: Chronicles

Jeff Sherry
Hagan History Center

Do you know the role our region played in providing a path back to alcohol after Prohibition tried to shut it down? Or where the name Erie came from? Any idea which local bank owner defied the federal government to support her community during the Great Depression? Chronicles, on WQLN PBS, is taking a deep dive into all that makes the Lake Erie region remarkable, both past and present. Here's a preview of what's coming up on Chronicles:

The District: Saving Erie's Character | November 10
