Photo Essay: Historic Roscoe Village
October 14, 2011
Roscoe Village , located in Coshocton, is a living history center that's actually quite full of life! A public-private partnership, the village preserves beautiful red-brick Classical Revival buildings from Ohio's canal boat era. Visitors can park in one spot, then wander around to museums, restaurants, boutiques, a general store, and even a wine bar! Currently, the amazing collection of antique tin toys is a must-see. During the summer months, you can catch a ride on the Monticello III, a restored canal boat, for a slow yet peacefully quiet experience of mid 19th century travel.
Roscoe Village takes full advantage of the fall season with its popular Apple Butter Stirrin' Festival this weekend (Oct. 14-16.) If you make to Roscoe for the festival, you'll hear live bluegrass, country and gospel music, experience spooky spirit tours, and, of course, smell the sweet aroma of apple butter simmering in a copper kettle over an open campfire. Could there be a better way to celebrate autumn?
