"Seip Mound: Educate and relieve yourself" Seip Mound State Memorial by sambarnett

   Ohio is really into its history. Perhaps the reputation of being a "middle of the road" or "average" place has led it to remember, acknowledge and glorify its past to a greater degree than most of the other states in the Union. Every town here seems to have an historical marker perched on its limits, proclaiming everything from the birth of the first baseball comissioner to heralded developments in the field of dentistry. What would be overlooked in most other states seems to be celebrated here; some of the area even receiving lofty designations. Seip Mound is such an area.
   Although designated "state memorial" the Seip Mound area is, at its utmost essence, a large mound and a restroom facility. A glorified rest-stop, so to speak. Cruisin' along US 50, heading to Chillicothe, I took advantage of both offerings.
