Welcome to North Lewisburg!
Village BellOld Village Alarm and Curfew Bell

The Village Alarm Bell was removed from the belfry of the Old Town Hall building which was constructed in 1870. The bell was placed in front of the newly built Municipal Building in 1976.

The crack in the bell was the result of two local citizens ringing the bell in celebration of the ending of World War II.

North Lewisburg Branch

The library which was made possible by donations from village and area residents. The library is housed in the former “Quaker Friends Church” on Winder Street, which was restored by the efforts of the North Lewisburg Branch of the Friends of the Library and the Village of North Lewisburg.

Friends Church

Among the earliest settlers to Rush Township were members of a Religious Society of Friends or Quakers. These settlers emigrated here from the Eastern states. The Friends Church was built in 1879 at a cost of $4245.00. Although the Friends Church was not a stop for the Underground Railroad, it did support local Abolitionists who helped the runaway slaves reach Canada. The final service was held in the church on October 26, 1997, after which the church was donated to the Village of North Lewisburg. Now the building currently serves as the Champaign County Library North Lewisburg Branch.

Along Spain Creek

This from Ralph Lowell Coleman, Jr.;

I spent April - August in Ohio, working in the NL area transcribing the cemetery records of Maple Grove Cemetery and Woodstock Cemetery.  What a great experience!
 
Since returning "home" to Utah, I've created a new blog.  Check it out at http://alongspaincreek.blogspot.com   The little tidbits of history there are directly related to North Lewisburg, and I have lots more to add over the next several months.


Our History

Preface
The trip our forefathers made to this community one hundred seventy-five years ago is the idea behind this book. The courage and sacrifices of these men who have gone before, have been instrumental in the development of North Lewisburg,. From a wilderness and barren land we have come to be a community of prosperity and civilization, with a host of varied interests.

We have relied upon the Old Lewisburg Village Minute Books,- Middleton's History of Champaign County, 1917; Beds History of Champaign County 1881; old clippings from Goldie Millice's scrapbook; Reba Wilson's scrapbook, and accounts of events told by residents who can remember them. Thanks to all the many people. We are indebted for all their interesting information and valuable pictures which we have compiled, and now present to our readers. Please excuse any discrepancies or omissions as no offense was intended.
