Follow the new Ohio Literary Trail for the state’s best writerly spots.
This is cool: The Ohioana Library Association has released a map and list tracing a new “literary trail” through the state, featuring historical landmarks, museums, unique libraries, and other hidden destinations.
The list isn’t limited to the state capital of Columbus, either. The selections are divided by region, with some of the most interesting-looking spots located outside of central Ohio, from the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Cincinnati to the Mazza Museum, which exclusively features original art by children’s book illustrators, in Findlay.
Mountain House Press, where local legend and papermaking artist Dard Hunter produced specialty books, also caught my eye, as did Oak Hill, the historic 19th-century house that was a setting for Louis Bromfield’s The Green Bay Tree. Check out the full list and start planning for the After Times.
