We love the abundant wildlife on our property and have sighted four species of squirrel including the black, grey, fox, and flying squirrels! We've decided to name our resident black squirrel "Flash" to honor Kent State University, it's Alumni, and of course Superintendent Larry Wooddell and retired Davey Tree employee who introduced the black squirrel to Kent State in 1961. Kent State University has a Tuscarawas County Campus so it seems fitting that we adopt the black squirrel that lives in our front yard and name her Flash! We've even bought Flash a friendly-looking squirrel feeder who shares unsalted peanuts, sunflower seeds, and corn.
Riding the Ohio-Erie Canalway Towpath Trail our first group of bicyclists decided on staying Sunday, June 29th, 2020 at the Towpath Trail Peace Park to rest up for their trip back to Akron, Ohio. Of course, our photobombing mascot Airbud had to get in the photo too. We enjoyed hosting our first group of cyclists and look forward to sharing our property with many more yet to arrive at our historic Tuscarawas county destination.
We enjoyed hosting our first out-of-state campers, Alexa and her friend Shannon, both school teachers from Vermont. They decided to travel from Vermont to the Michigan peninsula for a summer adventure due to the COVID-19 quarantine and school break.
It's inevitable that someone may lose or leave something behind. When we find anything, it's put in our lost and found drawer and we attempt to notify who we think it belongs to. If we haven't a clue who the item it belongs, we add it to our lost and found collection with the hope that it's claimed later.
We do not mail the items back, be sure to check your site before leaving.
If you suspect that you left something behind or lost anything, please telephone Joe Rinehart at the Towpath Trail Snack Shack & Peace Park 330.389.1192
1. No Trespassing on neighbor's property! Our neighbors don't have a problem with our offering primitive camping, but they do have a problem with people on their land at 3 AM and frankly, WILL call the Sheriff and or otherwise protect their property if they think anyone is a potential threat!
Our boundary line runs through the center of the canal from the 12" 6 " Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad bridge to our pump house and to the lower driveway easement.
