Fort Recovery Ohio
Those familiar with my
Cross Tipped Church Blog my recognize these. I took these sometime last year. Along with being the home of the Indians (School sport team) it is part of the Land of the Cross Tipped Churches Scenic Ohio Byway.
They even have their own web page if you want to know more about its history. Here is an excerpt--
Fort Recovery is a pretty, little historic village of some 1,300 population, located in West Central Ohio. The village is built on the site of General St. Clair's defeat in 1791 and General "Mad" Anthony Wayne's battle (recovery) in 1794. The fort that was built under Wayne's command was called Fort Recovery and that remains the name of the village.
Along with the above monument there is a partial reconstruction of the Fort. There is also a museum. The Museum starting in September is only open on weekends from noon to five.
Both the museum and the Visitor Center pictured here were closed when I was there.
If your a history buff you certainly want to put this on your place to visit list.
