Oak Hill Festival Of Flags

415 North Front Street
Oak Hill, OH 45656

History

A United States Flag every forty feet on every street in the Village of Oak Hill was one of the original goals of a small group in the Village. The Oak Hill Festival of Flags was started in 1992 by an organization initially brought together to preserve an old school building.

Central, an old school dating back to 1901, was retired by the Oak Hill school system several years ago. A group of concerned citizens formed an ad hoc committee committed to preserving the school, taking it out of mothballs and perhaps even converting it into a community center.

Dan Brisker pitched the Festival of Flags idea to the Save Central Committee and the committee jumped on the idea. The decision to schedule the festival for the Memorial Day weekend fit with the flags/patriotic theme. Also, it was a long pre-summer weekend which already saw many ex-residents returning home for family visits, class reunions or for recreation.
