Donating countless hours to the preservation of Warren County history, Dr. Neil Schultz has been named Humanitarian of the Year by McMinnville’s Noon Exchange Club.“He never stops going,” said presenter Kelly Basham in describing Schultz’s work ethic when it comes to volunteering for organizations like the Warren County Historical Society and Heritage Alliance. “As president of the Warren County Historical Society, Dr. Schultz was instrumental in preserving the Oakham and Magness Home by placing the home on the National Register of Historical Places, as well as Magness Memorial Library.”Schultz’s work also helped pave the way for what is now Fairfield Village at the Warren County A&L Fair.“Dr. Schultz and members of the Historical Society located and moved from Harrison Ferry a cabin donated by Hubert Boyd,” Basham said. “Thus, the living history still goes on to give children and adults a glance at our history.”He, along with the late Arthur Lorance, presented children with a living history display on the making of molasses by building ovens for cooking and supplying a mule for grinding cane.During Warren County’s bicentennial celebration, Dr. Schultz was honored by Heritage Alliance with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
