This year we’re continuing our weekly look at unique festivals, events, and attractions that are within an easy driving distance of the Mansfield area. 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.There’s one place in Ohio where history comes in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
The Ohio History Center in Columbus routinely welcomes visitors to embrace the past in all of its varieties. During summer weekends, that means combining ongoing exhibits with opportunities to immerse oneself in all sorts of history-related experiences.
Consider this Saturday, for instance, when guests are invited to experience the past of “Crime & Corruption” in Ohio. This will include the following taking place in Ohio Village:
Throughout the day, the following will also be offered:
The Ohio History Center will offer talks on “Stories from the Ohio Penitentiary;” “True Crime” with Accused’s Amber Hunt; a look at the Sam Sheppard Case, and “House Calls: When the Doctor Came to You,” a look at Victorian family doctoring.
