"Forests and Farm Land on Low Hills" Ohio by glabah

My father lived in Ohio for a few years in the mid-1980s, ending in 1987. We boated on Lake Erie, visited a few tourist railroads including the Hocking Valley Scenic. He lived a little north of Cambridge in a little town called Kimbolton. The main highway through town turned almost immediately to gravel upon leaving the town (and remember this was a numbered highway!).

A small state park nearby was the only real local entertainment.

Lake Erie was still in the process of being cleaned up at that point in time, but even so the areas around Marblehead and a few other lesser known spots near the lake actually offered reasonably attractive locations.
