Interviews

The Bexley Historical Society has interviewed numerous people, recording their stories.

Interview subjects include former residents who have made their mark on the world and treasure their time growing up in Bexley, as well as long time residents whose families have been in Bexley for generations.

Their stories are used to enhance our understanding of the history of Bexley and are incorporated into our displays in the Cottage Museum.

If you have a story you would like to share, please contact us.

She said of her childhood in Bexley: “The community one is raised in becomes more than a memory – it becomes your legacy; it becomes a part of who you are. My experience in Bexley was profound.”











William “Billy” Cohen, former WOSU Ohio State House reporter, said that he has “…fond memories of growing up in Bexley, where I remember receiving a wonderful education in a safe, secure environment with no feelings of prejudice or discrimination.”
