The Brownella Cottage was
constructed between 1885
and 1887, and is said to be
haunted. It was built as a wedding gift to Bishop Brown
and Ella Scranton Bradford by
Bradford’s adoptive mother
Mary Scranton Bradford. Paranormal Investigations can be
arranged by contacting the
Galion Historical Society at
[email protected], or

Bucyrus
There are three murals
located in Bucyrus that were
created by world-renowned
artist Eric Grohe. The Liberty
Remembers mural is located
on North Sandusky Avenue
next to the Daily Scoop, only
one block from Washington
Square where Grohe’s largest
mural, the Great American
Crossroads, is located.
Bucyrus Copper Kettle
Works Ltd. was known as the
D. Picking Company for the
past 100 years. Visitors come
from around the globe to tour
the company known for its
hammered and handmade copper kettles. After the death of
fourth-generation owner Helen
Picking Neff last year, Steve
Schifer took over the business.
He had been a coppersmith
for the Picking family for 39
years.
Cooper’s Mill is a major
attraction in Bucyrus and is
known for the homemade
apple butter made at the

homemade jams, candies and
an array of other items. The
business was founded in 1969

Bucyrus is known as the

and operated. The shop offers
an array of other meats to purchase along with a hot bar and
a dessert bar.
The Speakeasy is hot spot
in Bucyrus and is the underground location where Al

Where to go in Morrow?
Our top 10 things to
do in the heart of Ohio
Staff report
While a vastly rural county, Morrow offers residents and visitors alike
more than just a trip to an agricultural
stronghold in Central Ohio.
The ever expanding Morrow County
has plenty of recreational activities to
provide anyone a day of adventure or
relaxation.
A first stop for those who enjoy the
outdoors, Mount Gilead State Park,
located off State Route 95, offers
visitors six miles of hiking and bridle
trails, fishing opportunities and camping facilities.
The newly renovated park had a busy
off-season as it was the site of a $1.6
million revitalization project, funded
by a state grant designed to improve
state parks across Ohio.
Visitors can now use improved
campsites, shower houses, a pavilion
and new playground equipment, while
checking out Morrow’s lone state park.
For those who want a different view
of the landscape, Mid-Ohio Balloon
Adventures located in the heart of
Morrow County provides its customers
with an aerial look at the surrounding
area.
Gary Tyo, the company’s owner and
30-year balloon piloting veteran, is
available for flight seven days a week
May through November.
Mid-Ohio offers flights at sunrise and
sunset each day. Tyo can be reached at
419-560-7535 or at [email protected]
midohiobaloon.com.
Next on our list is Morrow County’s
favorite paintballing spot, Splatter
Park Paintball Games. The paintball
park is located at 5560 County Road 29
and offers traditional paintball matches, low-impact paintball games and
airsoft matches for nearly all ages.
The park is open Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Visit them at
splatterpark.com for more information.
For the hop enthusiast, next on
our list of places to visit is Morrow
County’s own Hoof Hearted Brewing, located 300 County Road 26 in
Marengo.
Boasting a flagship of stouts, pale
ales, porters and IPAs, Hoof Hearted
has a number of beers fit to satisfy any
craft brew fan’s pallet.
While the taproom in Marengo
is open a limited number of hours
through the week, Hoof Hearted hosts
monthly events and release parties at
its Morrow location.
The brewery also recently opened a
pub in Columbus’ Italian Village, which
operates with more traditional hours.
Visit them at hoofheartedbrewing.
com.
For differently geared outdoor recreation in Morrow County, look no
further than Fishing Frenzy Catfish
Lake located at 1769 State Route 309
in Caledonia. The lake is home to
a number of stocked catfish species
including blue, channel and shovelhead catfishes.
Anglers can also participate in tournaments held every weekend at the lake.
Passangers take flight with Gary tyo of Mid-Ohio Balloon Adventures.
Headwaters Outdoor Education
Center is another option for the outdoor minded to hit in Morrow County.
The site is located on county property
and is administered by Morrow Soil
and Water Conservancy.
Activities at the HOEC include foot
golf, an arboretum and a new utility building, as well as a Free Little
Library and many trails through a variety of habitats.
Southern Morrow County is home
to the Cardinal Center Campground
and Shooting Center, an outdoor
event facility and campground located
near State Route 61 and Interstate 71.
George Fleiner | Civitas Media
Cardinal Center is outfitted with an
indoor heated pool, a lake for fishing,
over 400 campsites with nine standard
cabins and 20 deluxe cabins available
for rent.
Chesterville Flea Market located
on State Route 95 in Chesterville offers
patrons a selection of country creations
and exhibits. The flea market is open
May through September on Saturday
and Sunday.
For history buffs paying visit to the
central Ohio county, The Morrow
County Historical Society located in
Mount Gilead focuses on the Morrow’s
rich cultural heritage.

Summer fun in Southeastern Ohio
Staff report
Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Southeastern Ohio
makes for an adventurous travel destination for those cruising the Buckeye
State.
The region is home to many of the
state’s parks and outdoor recreation
opportunities, as well as a peppering
of homegrown Appalachian towns and
villages.
First on our list of places to visit
in the region is Hocking Hills State
Park located in Logan.
The park is home to cascading
waterfalls, steep cliffs, deep recess
caves, rock outcrops, gorges and extensive forest growth.
Visitors can pick up trailheads for
the park’s seven miles of hiking trails
at any of the six main park areas: Ash
Cave, Cedar Falls, Old Man’s Cave,
Conkle’s Hollow, Cantwell Cliffs and
Rock House. The park makes for a
great stop to take in the area’s natural
beauty.
For those looking for a different midsummer destination in the area, Ohio
Brew Week runs July 10-18 in Athens,
the home of Ohio University.
Each year the city hosts the week
long spotlight of the state’s craft breweries bringing in beer enthusiasts from
around the state.
The week is filled with activities
including special keg tapping, brewing
workshops and a home-brew competition. If you are interested in craft beer,
Ohio Brew Week is one of the state’s
premier showcases.
Music fans have been flocking to
the Nelsonville Music Festival since
2013, as the festival has hosted diverse
number of acts in the past such as
John Prine, The Flaming Lips, Merle
Haggard and Wilco.
This year, Nelsonville will hold its
annual festival from June 2-5 touting
Charles Bradley, Marco Benevento,
Gary Clark Jr., Randy Newman and
numerous other acts on its lineup.
Tickets and camping passes are available on the fest’s website at nelsonvillefest.org.
Southeastern Ohio has long been
of interest to paranormal enthusiasts,
leading national ghost hunting shows
to the area in search of ghastly footage.
For those on their own Ohio paranormal quest, The Moonville Tunnel
is one of the top-stops in the region.
Located near Zeleski State Forest,
the Moonville Tunnel has long been
the site of ghost tales following a train
collision that killed two people there in
the 19th century.
Legend has it that the engineer and
fireman killed in the crash still lurk the
tunnel.
Adding to the tale, the former town
of Moonville is abandoned, and its
remnants are now covered by the forest that surrounds the area.
Regardless of urban legend, The
Moonville Tunnel is one of the area’s
great glimpses into Southeastern Ohio
history. It is located on Hope-Moonville Road in McArthur.
