During Commencement / Reunion / Memorial Day Weekend visitors and townsfolk alike flocked to the Oberlin Depot for “The Grand Oberlin History Extravaganza.” Among them
were Dan and Marly Merrill, who examined one of the exhibits with the intensity for which they are renowned, and Endowed Life Member Bill Farquhar (OC ’43), who
displayed photographs of Oberlin he took while he was a college student.

A significant component of the Oberlin Heritage Center’s outreach and service activities is its summer camp program. In 2009, “Friends of Freedom” campers visited Charles
Grandison Finney’s grave in Westwood Cemetery and learned how he and others advocated the end of slavery; and Boy Scouts learned about the life and legacy of a twentieth-
century exemplar of freedom and philanthropy, Colonel Richard R. Hallock, as they learned how to properly raise a flag at the Hallock memorial flagpole by the Monroe House.
