I came across the Temple of Tolerance 5-6 years ago when reading through the entire Ohio section of the Roadside […]Read more "Temple of Tolerance – Auglaize County"

The whole thing starts off fairly unassuming. There’s a pedestal bird bath built out […]Read more "Hartman Rock Garden – Clark County"
For those of you that might be getting convinced that southern Ohio is nothing but Native American burial and ceremonial mounds…this post won’t change that perception. It probably will be the last one for a while as I’m trying to change things up and move on to different parts of the state in the near future.
