A Triple Treat: Three Museums In One……….OHIO on the NATIONAL ROAD Part # 2 (Zane Grey)

PART #1 THE NATIONAL ROAD

NATIONAL ROAD- ZANE GREY -ZANESVILLE ART POTTERY MUSEUM. I know most readers of this blog post will never have the chance to visit in person so my hope is that in viewing this post you will be able to say “I’ve been there.” This post will cover the Zane Grey portion 0f the museum.... Sometimes I need to remember there is a lot to see close to home.

Thanks “Kat” for showing me around

I am thinking of the poor parents, 11 years just snipped off like that. I lost my son, and her parents lost 11 years.
