September 18, (Saturday)
Left Parkersburg on Hi-way 77 to Dover, Ohio. Several hours were spent around Sugarcreek, Ohio which is the Amish Country of Ohio and a beautiful area. We then returned to Dover and toured the Warther Museum which contained many lovely hand carved pieces, mostly trains, railroad equipment, etc. Mr. Warther, who died about five years ago, was truly an artist and craftsman. The museum is being maintained by his children and grandchildren. It is a very impressive place. Lynn bought a set of kitchen knives made under the Warther formula. On to Canton, Ohio to see the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Lynn didn’t want to go but the others insisted and he was glad they did. The next several hours were spent on a detour trying to find a motel, a bridge across the Ohio or just about anything. When we finally found a motel the gas tank was empty and Lynn’s bladder was full (so what else is new?)
It’s good to see that the Warther Museum is going strong. Many of the places in this travel log are long gone.
