Did you know Sarah Jessica Parker, 

the actress, was born in Nelsonville, Ohio?

Photo taken by Sandra Mitchell Quinn as Sarah Jessica Parker  received the key to the city October 21, 2004 about 5:30 pm on the porch of the historic Dew Hotel on the Victorian Public Square. About 200 people awaited her arrival at Nelsonville and finally Sarah arrived, was escourted from her vehicle, then climbed the stairs of the old hotel to receive her key out on the historic porch. She thanked everyone for coming out to see her. Lots of local politicians were also on the porch with her.  She signed a few autographs upon leaving for fans waiting by her car on her way to Athens for a college political rally.  

Thanks for visiting our county Sarah!
