Welcome back to Roscoe village.
As you can see original buildings are in pristine shape.
They still have the old brick sidewalks. They add to the town's ambiance.
Artisan's shops are tucked behind the main buildings.
All the buildings have patriotic swags.
These buildings now house inviting little shops.
And some have been converted to restaurants.
With outdoor seating.
Inside the General Store you can find all sorts of tempting treats.
This town resembles Colonial Williamsburg.
The original school house.
Brick paths lead to many beautiful gardens.
A close look at some well preserved artifacts.
Some of the historic building are still occupied.
The village smith
This is one of the few houses with wood siding and this is also privately owned.
Many areas in Ohio were active in the Underground Railroad. If you are not familiar with the Underground Railroad it was a system for transporting slaves to freedom.
Then we saw this sign. This store has a fantastic collection of fine acoustic instruments. It had the largest collection of guitars I have seen anywhere and I was in Nashville just last year! I got so excited that I forgot to take a picture of the old house which is the Lock Keepers house.
And I came home with the hammered dulcimer I have been dreaming about for years! It has inlays of the Harris Rose from the Book of Kells. I WILL learn to play this. When I do, I will make a video for you to see and hear. I hope you can wait for several years!
Hope you enjoyed Roscoe Village! I will be making a few more of these trips as soon as the weather cools a bit. I am hibernating now from the heat.
