Marblehead Village Square

It looks like spring has finally arrived! Mother Nature really kept us on our toes this year-first with a false sense that the mild weather had arrived, only to turn around and give us cold temperatures, rain, sleet and even snow. The warmer temperatures have started and we are now enjoying spring on the Marblehead Peninsula.

This is an exciting year for the Village of Marblehead, as we are celebrating our 125th Anniversary. The Village was officially named a municipal corporation on January 2, 1891. Winslow Griesser was sworn in as our first Mayor, and we have been moving forward ever since.

55 Years of Service: Honoring Hal B. Boehler, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Station Marblehead Ohio, decorated WWII combat veteran

At age 18, Hal Boehler decided to enlist in the U.S. Coast Guard. That was in 1943 after graduating from Tiffin Columbian High School. At that time, the Coast Guard was part of the U.S. Navy until after WWII. After boot camp at Manhattan Beach, N.J., Hal was assigned as a seaman on the CGC Tupelo (W303) “A” Class 180 ft. Buoy Tender ship. Shortly after, the ship was ordered to the South Pacific and prepared for combat in 1944.
