New Concord, OH (9/2/2017)

Saturday, September 2, 2017 (continued)
Since we had time, we drove back to New Concord, OH to see the John & Annie Glenn Museum.
The John & Annie Glenn Museum is in John Glenn's boyhood home (KSS)
An addition on the back of the house has two floors of exhibit space and the elevator. You enter the house itself and are greeted by "Mrs Glenn" (John's mother?). There are original items belonging to John Glenn's parents, to Annie Glenn's parents, and to John and Annie Glenn.
Heading back toward Zanesville, we stopped at the National Road and Zane Grey Museum.
A replica of Zane Grey's study that he had built to
provide privacy and quiet as he wrote while sitting in
his Morris chair and using a lapboard
A diorama of the National Road,
starting in Cumberland, MD
Conestoga wagon
Roseville Pottery; the Freesia Line (1945)
Roseville Pottery; rare art pottery (early 1900s)
A pre-steam roller  for building the National Road? (KSS)
An original Warren Pony Truss Bridge (1909) that crossed Salt Creek,
but was moved here in 200 when it could not handle heavy traffic
Back in Zanesville, we had dinner at Muddy Misers.
Muddy Misers and the Purple Sage Gallery
Muddy Miser was a father figure to Zane Grey, and the Purple Sage refers to Grey's first commercially successful novel, Riders of the Purple Sage. We sat in the gallery in front of Grey's knit sweater.
