Author: Jason Lombardi

A native of Malvern, Jason's love of history developed at an early age. He became self-appointed caretaker of the Hardesty Cemetery in Malvern at the age of approximately ten-years-old. While researching those interred at the burial ground, Jason made connections with numerous Malvern residents who experienced its history, building a foundational knowledge of historical events and data associated with the village. He served as historian of the Malvern United Methodist Church for a number of years which further perpetuated research of the area. While scouring the community for historical information, Jason connected with Malvern native Mrs. Frances L. (Thomas) Montella. Their joint efforts and common desire to preserve Malvern's past led to the formation of the Malvern Historical Society, Inc. in 1994.

  1. Have enjoyed taking a look at your website and that of the Village of Malvern which is very nicely done. Am a long time member of the Carroll County Historical Society and just received their notice about the annual meeting at Algonquin Mill (I used to have a cottage on Atwood Lake). It reminded me that there once was a poet who I think was of English nationality and who lived for years on a farm near Malvern. Grace Goulder may have written an article about him in her series, “Ohio Scenes and Citizens” in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Can anyone there give me his name and something about his work. Is anything of his in print? I am at Western Reserve Academy in Hudson. Thanks.
