Rick Finch

Rick Finch is site manager of Fort Meigs. Previously, Mr. Finch worked at Living History Farms, a 550-acre site in Urbandale, Iowa, containing three working farms that demonstrate agricultural techniques from the 1700s, 1850, and the 1900s. He left a job as director of historical interpretation at Living History Farms to join Fort Meigs because he wanted to be closer to relatives in Michigan and have a position without so many administrative responsibilities. Mr. Finch said he is hoping to continue raising money for the Fort Meigs capital campaign. The site plans to raise $1.5 million to help pay for new equipment and displays. He also wants to better publicize Fort Meigs to increase the number of visitors.
