Ohio, its first university commemorate proud histories

Sewah Studios of Marietta, Ohio, knows historical markers. "We are the premier manufacturer of historical markers in the world," says President and Owner Dave Smith. "We probably do 75 or 80 percent of the historical markers in the country." Smith's firm, which has been in business since 1927, can produce one historical marker in about 16 hours; however, Sewah Studios works on several at a time, completing five or six a day.
