Motts Military Museum

Motts Military Museum has quite a wide range of artifacts ranging from the Revolutionary War through the War on Terror.  Located in Groveport, Ohio it is easily accessible and directions and contact information can be found at the official website.  This will be the first part of the series.  The museum is currently looking for funding to open a new wing for additional artifacts.  We will have another article to cover that opening.

The museum must be seen to be properly appreciated.  It can be an educational, emotional, and enlightening journey.  We'll tantalize your taste buds with a sampling of images.  This should get you sufficiently excited and wanting to make a trip.

There are a few main isle ways that contain memorabilia and original artwork.

Everything is laid out in an orderly fashion and is well documented.  A lot of time has gone into the carefully constructed displays.  It is one of the best displays I have ever seen.   On par with the likes of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Up in Cleveland, OH.

Here are some images of the things you will be able to see here:
Military Uniform with Purple Heart Medal

Nazi military hat

The cell door of Confederate Gen. Morgan when he was held of the Ohio Penitentiary

Original artwork regarding the Jewish Holocaust
Outside, you can find military vehicles and artillery pieces of all kinds.

Attack Helicopter

121th Fighter Wing Aircraft

Trooper Water Transport Craft


A replica of Edward Rickenbacker's house is also found on the grounds.  For those of you unfamiliar with Rickenbacker's contributions to this country and Ohio - please read this summary and learn about this great Ohioan.

A Day At The Cincinnati Zoo

Some times there are places that get overshadowed.  The Cincinnati Zoo very well may be one of them.  While not as large as the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, there is plenty to do and see here.

I spent just a few hours there and came away with some great images to share with you all.

Ault Park

Ault Park is the 4th largest Cincinnati park.  It is named in honor of Ida May and Levi Ault who took a great interest in Cincinnati parks.

The main pavilion is built in the Italian Renaissance style.

The grounds have gardens, trails and scenic views of the Little Miami Valley.

This looks like a great place for events and short hiking jaunts.

Officially named, Field of Corn(with Osage Orange Trees), this art installation was completed in 1994 with public funds by the Dublin Arts Council.

There are 109 "ears" of corn in the field and three different molds were used in constructing the ears.

The installation is in Franz Park located at 4995 Rings Road, Dublin, OH

Definitely worth checking out and seeing this for yourself.
