Summer Road Trips: A New Presidential Museum

This year we’re continuing our weekly look at unique events and attractions that are within an easy driving distance of Richland County. We call these “Summer Road Trips.” Of course, we regularly feature the many extraordinary places to visit right here in Richland County and encourage our readers to get out and experience what is on offer in our own backyard.

Today we’re suggesting one of our shortest possible road trips — just 35 or so miles from Mansfield, and perhaps even a shorter driving distance from Bellville and Lexington. We’re also talking about a rarity — a brand new museum that commemorates the life of a President of the United States.

The Warren G. Harding Presidential Library & Museum has been the focus of local, regional, and national attention before and after its recent opening.

In May, 1822Marion published a post on the day before the facility’s opening, which can be accessed here:

Then, earlier this month, 1822Marion shared a story about a national travel magazine including the new library and museum in a list of reasons to visit Marion.

President Harding was of course born in Morrow County, but just a few hundred feet from the Richland County line.
