History of the Ravenna Arsenal
Presented by COL(R) William E. Meade & Tim Morgan
Saturday, May 27 at 1pm.
Due to the size of the anticipated crowd, this event will take place at Ravenna High School.
The Ravenna Arsenal, now known as Camp James A. Garfield, employed over 14,000 people during WWII. Learn about its past, present, and possible future. A slideshow and map presentation will conclude with Q&A.
In the military since 1978, Meade was assigned to Camp Ravenna as Engineer Officer and took command in 2008. He served as Garrison Commander until 2016.
Tim Morgan is a State Environmental Supervisor who graduated from Ravenna High School in 1982 and has been working at the arsenal since 1988.
Clock Restoration Update: As 2023 progresses, so does restoration on the 1882 Seth Thomas #18 clock that for 70 years ticked away on top of the Portage County Courthouse. You can read all about it here.
