A stop in Zanesville, Ohio*
I stopped in Zanesville, Ohio on my way from Pennsylvania to St. Louis on June 5th, 2020. I needed a rest on my journey and this town was a nice place to stop. My legs were almost numb from sitting the car for 350 miles, so I checked into the hotel and began to explore the town. I was quite impressed by the courthouse, many of the churches, and the buildings in Zanesville. I trust that you will enjoy the images below and the links provided that will give you more information on the buildings. I will post some more pictures of other travel sites soon. I have some awesome lake, river, mountain, and bridge pictures to post. Keep coming back to see the rest of the summer pictures! Get out and enjoy the road, be safe, but enjoy.
Muskingum County Courthouse
This may be the most beautiful courthouse that I have ever seen. You can find out more about this beautiful building by going to this site.

So there you have it. Zanesville, Ohio. If you are ever in the area, you love old buildings, and want to walk around, check it out.
Also, I got a really good rate at the Baymont Inn and Suites. The owner, a man from India, Sonny, would love to see you. It is close to some restaurants and easily accessible to downtown if you are one to walk and explore. Tell Sonny hello for me!
