The home of President Rutherford B. Hayes is pictured above
Instead of taking the Ohio Turnpike to return home, we decided to take Route 20 home and it was there in Fremont Ohio, we discovered the home and library/museum of Ohio's 19th president, Rutherford B. Hayes. It was a delight to walk around the grounds there. Just about any tree you can imagine has been planted on the estate and it is said that he named the trees for the friends who visited there. There were little signs with different names on them all around.
Further on across Route 20 we spied this cute little frozen custard stand along the way. For those that don't know, Frozen custard is a cold dessert similar to ice cream, but made with eggs in addition to cream and sugar. Many people call it soft ice cream. It is delicious, but melts very fast. If you've ever had a ice cream cone of this stuff, you learn to lick pretty fast on a hot summer day. It usually comes in only chocolate or vanilla, but I have seen strawberry too. The picture below is of one of my little grandsons who obviously enjoyed some of the chocolate variety recently.
For those that don't know, I do live in the northern part of Ohio. Centrally located a little west of Cleveland, Ohio.
The trip I just completed started in southern Ohio at the Ohio River town of East Liverpool and we traveled west by the Ohio Lincoln Highway which is state Route 30 in many cases and the Old Lincoln Highway in others.
This is the end of this part of my travel log for now and regular blog posts will continue tomorrow. But there will be more trips coming. We'll be having more lovely weather between now and when the snow flies so I hope to make the most of them
Seeing some beautiful sights in and near Ohio is just one of the ways I'll be doing that.
