Many magnificent Bluffton trees victims of June 29 severe winds

Some of Bluffton's oldest residents - trees that have watched Bluffton experience World Wars, the Great Depression, and even the turn of an earlier century - couldn't survive the June 29 severe weather that struck Ohio.

This tree, between College Hall and Musselman Library may have even witnessed the founding of Central Mennonite College in 1900.

Several other aftermath storm photos are posted below. The Icon invites viewers to send photos and stories of their experiences on June 29.

By Sunday evening the Spring Street recycling center, which was almost absent of brush, was back to its pre-mulch pile size of February.
