Hardin County, Ohio

Welcome to Hardin County

I lit out to the southwest along backroads until I hit Rt. 68 at Arlington, OH. From there, I headed south into Hardin County. Nothing but corn and soy bean fields and the occasional stand of trees. The air was crisp, the sun was bright and the tunes flowed from my iPod.

Dunkirk, OH - Home of Hardin-Northern High School...and not much else.

Wait, they have a Dairy Dream. Keep the Dream alive!

With a little paint and a few throw pillows...

United Methodist Church


Kenton, OH - The county seat along the upper reaches of the Scioto River. Supposedly, there is a rather large Amish community in the area, but I didn't see any. Probably out harvesting. The one thing I noticed about downtown Kenton - you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a church steeple.

The Hi-Road Drive-In Theater just north of town

A fortress-like downtown building. Prepare the vat of boiling oil!

Let's go to The Bar. By the way, it was open

Ada, OH - Home of Ohio Northern University and Wilson Sporting Goods, the only manufacturing plant that makes footballs for the NFL.

Are you kidding? The Regal Beagle? I bet Jack and Chrissy and Janet are inside. Maybe Larry, too

All footballs used by the NFL are made here
