Announcing a New County Park!
Early this year, the family of Patricia and Herb Wagers donated 24 acres of land known as the "Devil's Backbone" to the Preble County Park District. The Wagers family owned the property since 1966 and allowed it to become a wildlife sanctuary with native plants and animals. The area is scenic with limestone formations and beautiful wateralls. The Park District plans to develop the new park with hiking trails and picnic areas while maiantaining its natural state. The park is located outside of Camden on old state route 725. The Park District will announce when the new park is open for public enjoyment.
