Historic Ohio - A Photographic and Narrative Visit to Some Unique Places
Toni Leland, author
This 103-page collection of articles by freelance writer Toni Leland visits some of the fascinating historical places in Ohio. While the articles only touch on a small portion of Ohio's historic wealth, the ones chosen are true gems. Ride with the author as she travels the National Road from the historic Wheeling Suspension Bridge at Bridgeport to the last important town before the Indiana border, New Paris. When you've caught your breath, visit some of the amazing Ohio opera houses that have been lovingly restored and are in use today. Like archaeology? Interested in Native American history? The Earthworks of Licking County are fascinating and beautiful. Then, for something a little more off the beaten track, the author shares photographs and vignettes of some of the more interesting historical cemeteries in the state. From the comfort of your home, view the gorgeous photographs of these places and, perhaps, plan your own outing for the future. (8,600 words, 84 photographs)
Very informative and interesting! We're now planning our own National Road journey, as well as visits to the Newark Earthworks!
