Jon Crispin's Notebook

Heritage Center of Clark County

Posted in Abandoned Buildings, Architecture, Cities, History by joncrispin on 10/12/2014

 

This ⇧ model (made out of corn kernels) is of the building in my previous post.  It is displayed at the Heritage Center of Clark County.  Incredible Richardsonian Romanesque architecture which houses one of the most interesting local museums that I have ever seen.  Really, go check it out if you are ever in this part of Ohio.

So much of downtown Springfield is gone by way of the wrecking ball, which is really sad to me.  But the Heritage Center has a fantastic recreation of downtown streets as the were decades ago.  When I first came to Wittenberg, my friends and I used to stop in to Sons bar for a beer or two.

Off to the Wescott House now.  I can’t wait to see it.

    Sons Bar, I remember it well! Bruce

    This must be a relic of an early country childhood, but Hank finds the phrase “model made out of _____” strangely alluring. Even if that ______ isn’t chicken.
