Viewing a street from an adjacent alley is one of my favorite things to do. This alley runs behind the Hotel Millersburg in Millersburg, Ohio. This quaint town is the county seat of Holmes County in the heart of Amish Country.
I enjoyed this small town with its antique stores, tree lined streets and interesting old buildings. In the above picture you get a partial view of the Holmes County Courthouse, the crown jewel of the downtown.
It was built in 1880 and is grand. Here’s another view.
The clock tower is great
As much as I enjoy seeing the entire building, I like that alley view a lot. It’s just a glimpse but enough to make you want to see more. That’s the thing about adventuring – it gives you a peek of what’s out there and a reason to go explore!
Guernsey County has one of Ohio’s most beautiful courthouses. The sandstone building is enormous. It doesn’t just sit in downtown Cambridge, it presides over downtown.
They put on an incredible light show timed with music as part of their Dickens Christmas Victorian Village every year. I haven’t been in a long time and badly need to add this to my wish list for 2021.
If you go, it’s right on the National Road. There are some great shops downtown and good restaurants too including Theo’s Restaurant where there’s no vegetarian menu but a PIE list that will make you forget all about that! Salt Fork State Park is just outside of town and provides a wonderful backdrop for relaxation and recreation. Try the pizza at the lodge and if you go in summer spend a day at the beach.
A friend directs their tourism – she and her staff at the visitors center would love to hear from you. Oh, and if you go, be on the lookout for Bigfoot! They claim he lives there!!!
