Abandoned Ohio : Ghost Towns, Cemeteries, Schools, and More - by Glenn Morris (Paperback)
About this item
Founded by Glenn Morris in 2012, the Ohio Ghost Town Exploration Co. researches, explores, and promotes the preservation of the coolest ghost towns and historic locations in Ohio. The group also goes on several road trips every year to discover what's physically left of them. Ohio is packed with history dating back to the Revolutionary War days and was instrumental in turning the United States into what it is today. Its pioneers, industries, and Buckeye pride are second to none in the nation. The abandoned locations featured in this book aren't normally highlighted on tourism maps or found in pamphlets at rest areas and traveler's service buildings. The main goal is to have them well documented with pictures and information to increase state tourism and raise awareness about interesting places around Ohio that may soon be lost to time and nature. One of the best ways to learn about history is to go where it happened. The people who lived in some of the towns are long gone, but the stories continue to be told through the buildings and items that were left behind.
