To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s death and the passing of his funeral train through Plain City in 1865, the Plain City Historical Society will host a program at the former railroad station site between 8-9 pm on Wednesday, April 29 at 250 Maple Street in Plain City.
The ceremony will include bagpiper Drew Lear, local VFW and American Legion Honor Guard, as well as an address from retired Lt. General Charles E. Stenner. There will be a moment of silence at 8:45 pm (the time of the train’s arrival), followed by an Honor Guard rifle salute and the playing of “Taps” by trumpeter, Doug Weakley. To find out more, go HERE.
Prior to the funeral train ceremony, attend a Civil War music performance by Steve Ball at 7 pm at the Plain City Public Library, 305 West Main Street. Once the concert is done, you can walk from the Library to the Historical Society’s program on Maple Street.
Musician Steve Ball will perform American Civil War music on an authentic 1860’s guitar.

ASE Feed and Supply will be throwing a customer appreciation breakfast celebration on Saturday, April 25. Ken Jewell and his wife, Teresa, purchased the feed store and mill in 2001 and renamed it ASE in honor of their three daughters–Amy, Stacy, and Emily. They have been serving the Plain City community for fourteen years!
If you stop by on April 25, you can get a pancake breakfast from 8 am to 1 pm. There will also be a 10 percent discount on anything purchased inside the main store, including all bird seed and all pet food. Additionally, you can register in a drawing to win 1 year of FREE Blue Buffalo dog food. Get $5 off all bags of Tribute Feed (limit 10 bags per customer and you must pay at the time of purchase–no placing on account).
The customer appreciation event ends at 2 pm when the store closes.
I have to thank Ken and everyone at ASE for supporting Black and Orange Cat Foundation for the past seven years (or more). Carol Gaul helped Ken get the feral cats that were living around the mill and shop fixed and vaccinated. These cats kept the mice under control around the mill, but also tended to cross the street to the Gaul’s shop and often met unhappy fates on the road. After being fixed, they didn’t wander so much and Carol stopped worrying about them. Ken was also very glad to have the cats around.
Ken kindly donates food to Black and Orange every month, which we then distribute to people in need. We cannot thank Ken and ASE enough for all their generosity.
ASE Feed and Supply is located at 211 S. Jefferson Avenue (Route 42) in Plain City (they are across the street from McDonald’s). For more information, including hours of operation, products and services, visit their web site HERE.
