Newark Earthworks

We visited the Newark Earthworks, or at least part of it. It’s very spread out. This photo shows the mound at the center of the Great Circle Earthworks, which contains a ceremonial longhouse.

Nerk Shirts

Newark is pretty beat up and has several redevelopment areas that don’t seem to be redeveloping very well. I didn’t see anything that looked like a clothing or souvenir store and thus did not succeed in finding a Nerk shirt.

But I took a picture of the Longaberger basket building, and that’s nearly as good.

Granville

After the last of the reunion get-togethers, we drove out to Granville and wandered around downtown for a while. Granville was founded by various of my ancestors, and there’s a monument to that effect next to the Presbyterian church.
