Over the next months we will be consistently adding to the material on this site. We promise to present interesting tidbits, a serious look at the history of "America's Home Town" aka the "Pottery Capital of America," a bit of lore about our famous characters, and current info on how the Society plans to celebrate our 100th birthday in 2007.

For an opening look at the East Liverpool Ohio Historical Society as it is today -- our projects and our people, start with the buttons at left.

Regular linking, i.e. providing the URL of the East Liverpool Historical Society web site for viewers to click on and be taken to the East Liverpool Historical Society entry portal or to any specific article on the website is legally permitted.
Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
