  • William Howard Taft National Historic Site William Howard Taft National Historic Site Cincinnati, Ohio
    This National Historic site in Cincinnati, Ohio was listed in 1969, where the former Chief Justice of the United States and 27th President of the United States William Howard Taft was born; in 1857.  For the first 25 years of his life Taft lived here, in the Mount Auburn historic district of Cincinnati just north of downtown, built in 1835 and a Greek Revival house that is an excellent example of the wealthy person's home during that era.  William's father, Alphonso Taft came to the city from Vermont in 1839 to start his law practice, and after doing so moved his family there 10 years later.  Alphonso was a supporter of the Republican party and eventually became the 31st Secretary of War and the 35th Attorney General.  Alphonso bought the house in 1851 and the two acres it sat on to get away from the heat and humidity of the downtown area as did most affluent Cincinnatians in those days.  Alphonso's wife Fanny died in 1852, and his second wife came from Massachusetts where she taught school, in 1854 and she bore him a son, William Howard in 1857.  William lived at the house until he went to Yale University in 1874, and after he left, the rest of the family spent less time at the house, since Alphonso became part of the Ulysses S. Grant administration.  Four years later, the top floor and roof suffered damage from a fire, and after having it repaired leased it out.  The family moved to California in 1889 because of Alphonso's bad health, while William got married 3 years earlier.  Alphonso died in 1891 in San Diego and was brought back to Cincinnati to be buried.  His wife Louise finally sold the house in 1899 to Judge Albert Thompson and she moved back to Milbury, Massachusetts, to live with her sister.

  • Warren G. Harding Historic HomeWarren G. Harding Historic Home Marion, Ohio
    When Harding wasn't living in Washington as a U. S. Senator from Ohio, he spent his time at his home in Marion, Ohio with his wife Florence.  This beautiful house was built in 1891 for $3500 and was a present to his fiancé Florence Kling; as he worked as an editor and publisher of the Marion Daily Star.  They also lived here while he was a state senator from 1899 until 1904, and then the lieutenant governor from 1904 until 1906.  He was the U.S. Senator from 1915 until 1921, and the 29th President of the United States from 1920 until 1923.  Surrounding the home until 1903, was a wooden porch, and then it was changed to a stone porch that year and became the focal point for his attempt to run for the presidency.  He was to be the fourth and final candidate that campaigned from his front porch, after William McKinley, James Garfield and Benjamin Harrison.  Harding would speak to the crowds that assembled there, sometimes coming from across the nation to hear him speak about the many changes he would make as President, and it certainly worked well, as his garnered over 60 percent of the popular vote.  He was also the 8th man to come from the state of Ohio to become President.  This amazing home contains almost all the original furniture and furnishings that belonged to the Hardings while they lived there, and the Victorian Queen Anne home is a stunning example of that era's architecture.  Beside the house is a press house that was built for the news corps during his run for the presidency, presently being the museum for Harding and his first lady.  Warren G. Harding died after only serving 29 months in office, and is the only man that was elected President on his birthday, when he turned 55 years old.  It was also the first time that a woman could vote, and Florence placed an X beside her husband's name.  Although steeped in controversy and intrigue, his presidency was considered by many to be one of the worst in our short history, they have finally found out that he was a very popular President with some noteworthy ideas and the truth is slowly coming out about this incredible man that was President of the United States for only a little over 2 years and accomplished so much.  His trusting nature and high opinion of mankind may have hurt his legacy; but in time, people will come to realize that this quite possibly could have been one of the best Presidents we have ever had.

  • Warther Carving MuseumWarther Carving Museum Dover, Ohio
    At age 5, Ernest "Mooney" Warther found his first knife and started a life long journey that would create an incredible world of art and carving that is still magnificent and beautiful to view today.  Never thinking that carving would become a way of life, he worked in a steel mill from the age of 14 until he was 38, all the while using his continuously growing skills as a carver for a hobby.  Using only hand tools, this unbelievable master carver created 64 complete model trains with such exquisite detail that only a museum operated by his family, generation after generation, could contain it and showcase it to the skeptical public.  With many other wood carved pieces like plaques, walking sticks or canes and various whittlings, the museum is a fantastic place to visit.  The wood and ivory carving to the right is a marvelous example of the results of this master craftsman, that started his train carvings at the age of 28; using only walnut and bone for his materials, he eventually went into ebony, ivory and pearl.  His replica of Lincoln's funeral train using wood, ebony and ivory is a masterpiece that took a year to carve.  Reaching 68, he finally finished his goal of carving the steam engine's history and the Empire State Express, that measures over 8 feet is the biggest "working" ivory carving in the entire world.  With only a second grade education, he created works of art that the Smithsonian Institution deemed priceless works of art.  But since he believed the hobby that he loved wasn't really art, he never sold his objects for exorbitant amounts of money, although they were worth the price and many, most would gladly pay whatever he thought fair.  His selective eye could look at a chunk of wood, ivory, bone, ebony or other material and see the possible outcome with variations and highlights that would enhance the finished product.  His mechanical aptitude put him on a level with many other "geniuses" but he never considered it since it was just a result of his great love of carving.  Many of  his models are working and moving with such magnificent engineering skills that one would have imagined him as being very well educated and knowledgeable.  His steel mill carving is powered by a sewing machine motor, with intricate pulleys and belts that control his figures moving around the mill using rotational motion and turning into linear motion with ease.  Besides all this he was a wonderful philosopher, knowing that everyone had a significant talent, the trick being in discovering what it was.  He created his own tools when other tools failed to meet his needs; like the woodcarving knife with interchangeable blades; as well as inventing carving techniques like using arguto wood for the bearing surface on the moveable parts of his carvings, because he found that the wood was actually self lubricating.  He and his wife Freida would go exploring and hunting for arrowheads most Sundays and they amassed a collection of over 5000.  A dedicated family man, he helped his wife raise 5 children, going swimming, for picnics or walks through the woods, plus built a playground for his children and their friends to enjoy.  He started making knives of incredible strength and durability that his family still continues to this day, with a technique that he developed to keep the edge sharper longer.  A great man by any means, Mooney Warther lives on in his children's' children.  A place to visit above and beyond any attraction anywhere.

    Named the number one zoo in America by the USA travel guide in 2009, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium sits beside the eastern banks of the O'Shaughnessy Reservoir by the Scioto River in Powell, Ohio; just north of Columbus.  This world renown zoo has gained much attention and recognition thanks to its director emeritus Jack Hanna.  Home to over 5000 animals from 700 species, almost 2 million people come here to interact and watch the magnificent menagerie at play.  Divided into 8 international regions, the zoo also owns an 18 hole golf course called Safari Golf Club, Jungle Jack's Landing, an amusement park with 16 rides, and Zoombezi Bay, a water park.  With almost half the 580 acres the zoo owns devoted to the zoo, the rest is used for conservation experiments.  It also has a great working relationship with the Wilds, a 10,000 acre animal conservation area in the southeast part of Ohio.  Originally opened in 1905, it closed after five months, because of unknown reasons, and the present zoo opened in 1927 as the Columbus Zoological Gardens.  In 1956, Colo, was born as the first captive Western lowland gorilla in the world and celebrated her 50th birthday in 2006.  She now has 1 child, 10 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren, all living in zoos around the nation.  Due to those wonderful events and efforts, this zoo is a leader in the breeding of gorillas; and 30 has been born to the zoo since 1956.  Jack Hanna started as the director in 1978 and stayed until 1993, helping the zoo grow into what it is today; since the attendance when he arrived was about 360,000 a year and now almost 2 million.  The grounds were not clean and many facilities needed some kind of restoration, and Jack was just what the doctor ordered, sometimes staying after the zoo closed to pick  up trash and getting cages replaced with more natural habitants.   

  • Ohio Caverns
    The Ohio Caverns is a show cave, those that are accessible and visible to the general public, is near West Liberty, Ohio and about 30 miles from Dayton.  It is the biggest cave system in the state and is home to many crystal formations, one called the King, is simply magnificent and regal in its solitude.  Over 90% of the stalagmites and stalactites are still growing, perhaps because the cave was an aquifer where a river of underground melted glacier existed, but sometime has started receding into the ground or out through the rocks that surround the cave.  Discovered in 1897, by Robert Noffsinger, he was a farmhand, about 17 years old when he found a sinkhole in the ground after a particularly heavy rain and went to find out about it.  He dug  through some soil and found the limestone covering and also a crack where the constant 54 degree temperature intrigued him further, so he left to get equipment to check out this phenomenon and using a rope he brought lowered himself to the floor of the cavern and was the first man to set foot in the Ohio Caverns.  Over the years and with many changes and excavations, the cavern has developed into a magical realm that is visited by many thousands each year.  The most photographed room is the Palace of the Gods and the dual formation.  In the palace room, there are many various colors and formations with just about every kind of formation known to caves, including stalagmites, helicites, iron oxide formations, soda straws, manganese dioxide formations, flowstone, stalactites, dual formations and calcite formations.  The dual formations are very rare and unique, and this is the only cave in the nation, as well as one of the few in the world that is known to have these incredible formations.  These formations are calcite stalactites growing on the ends of iron oxide formations.
