1. Nearby Attractions and Notable Folks
Weaselboy Brewing Company

Our local brewpub situated on the muskingum river in Zanesville.

Alan Cottrill Sculpture Studio
17,000 sf  of a sculpture studio in beautiful downtown Zanesville where you can see the artist and his assistants at work.  Hundreds of bronze works, terra cotta and plaster pieces.  Educational Displays, Mold making, Wax Casting and More
the Wilds

The Wilds is a Zoo and Preserve for endangered species.  These animals find a home now on a huge tract of rolling and reclaimed coal strip mine .  It looks like the Sarenghetti in Ohio!  Check this place out, because the news report that the Wilds has 'turned the corner'...it is achieving its goal to become self sufficient, and to provide a place for the public to see priceless treasures, and with this income, to subsidize the work of helping these endangered animals to repopulate themselves, looking forward to the day when they can 'go home', much like the ancient Israelietes did when they crossed the Red Sea.  Definitely A GREAT PLACE for a family visit...

The Works: Center for History, Art and Technology

Here is another fantastic cultural treasure in Zanesville's rival to the West, Newark Ohio, where our Architectural firm is located.  Howard LeFevre, who's vision this was and is, commissioned us to do the architectural designs for the incubator facilities on a city block at 2nd Street in Newark.  As a result, we became members and because the Works is a Smithsonian affiliate, we have free tickets with our membership to visit other Smithsonian affiliate museums.  This place even has a cafe!  Check this link for fun things to do, especially for the kids...

Zanesville Art Center
 A fantastic regional art center, one of the five best small city museums in Ohio.  Of course, to toot my own horn, the renovation and addition is my design, at my architectural firm, HRJL Architects, Inc.  These folks hardly ever change their website, but they have a GREAT building and wonderful art.  This is well worth your time to visit, and something you ought to stop by at if you plan to go east from our place
Hot Air Balloon Rides at "Dreams Come True"

Hot Air Balloon Rides!  Unique hot air balloon products also, including awards, gifts, and promotional activities.   These folks are in Strasburg, which is about an hour or so northeast of us on interstate 77. 

But, perhaps the folks at 'Dreams Come True' will bring a balloon down to the Flint Ridge Vineyard one weekend and launch from the top of our hill and sail around the vineyard, Dillon Lake and other nearby sights!  Working on this...

The White Oak Inn, Danville OH
Stockport Mill Country Inn, Stockport OH

A restored inn at a mill on the Muskingum River about 45 minutes south of us.  This is worth the trip, folks.  Stockport and Mcconnellsville are wonderful river towns on the muskingum and full of treasures, and stockport mill inn and restaurant outdoes them all!

Hanover House Bed and Breakfast, Hanover OH

This Inn was once the house of David Longaberger, founder of the Longaberger Basket Company.   The views from this inn are simply unbelievable, and there is an internal loggia with bistro seating right as you enter, where you can eat right IN the view.   Wonderful themed rooms with sumptuous accommodations.
