Jul 6, 2014 - A Final Look At Our Little Piece Of Heaven

From Scenic Hills RV Park – Millersburg, OH Is it really time to pack up and move down the road? Where have the last 30 days gone? Seems this visit like our prior two monthly visits to this area just flew by. The relaxed feeling one gets visiting this area makes days suddenly become a week and before you know it what you anticipated would be a long stay is at its end. We certainly have enjoyed our first Ohio summer with its mild daytime temps and nice cool evenings. Maybe could have done with less rain and fewer thunderstorms but the...

Jun 29, 2014 - Lovin' Our Stay In Ohio

From Scenic Hills RV Park – Millersburg, OH We continue to enjoy the area. After this trip and two prior ones nearby “attractions” still to see are at a premium at least ones we care to visit. This trip we will not make any side trip to Canton so next visit will still have a thing or two to check out there. After all you need some things undone for your next travel route that brings you through an area! The last week has seen Cody getting his teeth cleaned……love the vet here and have had them cleaned each trip to the area. Also much cheaper...

Jun 17, 2014 - Just Enjoying Life

From Scenic Hills RV Park – Millersburg, OH Since last post we have just enjoyed the beautiful countryside and peaceful surroundings. A few thunderstorms have rolled in but rolled out just as quickly with the return of sunshine and blue skies once again over the rolling hills of Holmes County, Ohio. The park has filled on weekends but quiet and only a scattering of rigs during the week. We drove to nearby Wooster to frequent their local Wal-Mart and to visit the “Everything Rubbermaid” store. Saw their ad on a pickup back roads of the area...

Jun 7, 2014 - Atop The Hill Again!

From Scenic Hills RV Park – Millersburg, OH We are back on top of the hill at Scenic Hills RV Park! This is our third time to stay at this park and all three we have been on what is called the hill or highest level in the park. There are eight sites on the hill and we have now stayed in 3 of the 8…..this time in “E”. As anyone who has read or followed our journal know, we absolutely love Holmes County in Ohio. Both prior visits have been in the fall for fall color so we will have to see what if any color we can find now that summer is upon...

Sep 24, 2012 - "Sistine Chapel of the Amish & Mennonite"

From Scenic Hills RV Park – Millersburg, OH Why we put the Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center on the back burner last year when in this area is a mystery. But do know after our visit today that was a big mistake. It is a definite must see for those curious about the history and culture of the Amish and Mennonite people. In a special “Mural Hall” attached to the heritage center is one of only four cycloramas in North America. It is the entire work from research, sketches to final oils on canvas of a single artist. The giant cyclorama or...

Aug 18, 2011 - Berlin, OH

August 11-18 We left Nappanee IN today and headed east. We took US 30 and it was a nice smooth road and we got to see lots of the towns and farm lands. As we approached the Indiana/Ohio border we saw a large windmill forest. The NW wind was turning the propellers and generating electric. The land looked green and the ponds and rivers were up so the rainfall had been good over the last few weeks. We arrived at Berlin in the Amish area about 3:00 PM. Boy, has it changed since we were here in 2004. The area has grown and the campground has...

Sep 19, 2009 - Ohio Amish Country

September is a beautiful time in Ohio. Fall is in the air, trees are starting to change color, wildlife are gathering their winter stockpile of food and Ohioans are just touring the state. Yesterday Nancy and I headed for Amish country, which includes the cities, of Charm, Berlin, Sugarcreek, and Millersburg along with several other small towns. On the way north we passed through Coshocton Ohio. Once a bustling port on the Ohio & Erie Canal, Coshocton and the Historic Roscoe Village now mixes the charm and history of the 1800s with plenty...

Jun 24, 2009 - Wed. June 24 – Warthers Carving Dublin OH

This area is beautiful. Dotted with whitewashed farms and many horse drawn carriages. It is not unusual to see a nice, well kept home with a buggy in the garage. It does feel a little strange to be behind a horse & buggy at a stop light. Warthers imuseumemem dedicated to the carvings of .He found a pocket knife at the age of 5 and began whittling. He was a genius and so talented. He loved stenginesgins and studied all about the details. His carvings were so realistic that the railroad gave him a train car to display them and took them all...

Jun 23, 2009 - Tuesday June 23 – Berlin OH

We started with a visit to the Amish & Mennonite Heritage center. The highlight of the center is the Behalt. A 10ft by 265ft. cyclorama depicting the history of the Amish and Mennonite faiths from the 1500’s to the present. It was painted by Heinz Gaugel, a famous German painter. It took him 12 years. I was surprised to learn that the Amish and Mennonites are Christians who choose to live a certain lifestyle. Amish worship in homes or barns while Mennonites build churches. Both generally attend small one room schools close to their...

Jun 22, 2009 - Monday, June 22 – Columbus to Berlin OH – Amish Country

Beautiful RV park with lots of grass right next to the RV. Pulled out the table and a couple of jumps to work Jet and Cricket. Our neighbors came out to watch and seemed to enjoy our show. Berlin has become the tourist capital of the Amish – it reminds me of Panama City beach – lots of shops and restaurants with lots of traffic in a small area. We will get off the beaten path.

Oct 27, 2008 - Amish, Great Furniture & Snowflakes!

Writing from Wolfies Campground, Zanesville, OH As the title explains we did Amish country, great furniture & snowflakes. Yes we saw snowflakes on the drive to Berlin! Berlin, OH is in an Amish area about 45 miles north of Zanesville. The sad thing is it is very commercalized. We found a wonderful Amish made furniture store outside of Berlin. The had some beautiful furniture. We ate lunch at an Amish buffet. Of course the problem with a buffet is we always over eat. So we had to do some walking after that. It was so cold and damp, but we...

Oct 8, 2008 - Day 179 Berlin Ohio

Day 179 Wednesday 8th October Berlin Ohio Page 79 NK 14 What a gloomy day it is outside – it’s been heavy rain most of the nite and it’s still continuing without any sign of let-up this morning. Getting up and dealing with the morning routine doesn’t seem to have any urgency when it’s like this, hence our departure time was not too early. The countryside is rather pretty, well from what we can see it is. We are driving through the Amish Byways which doesn’t have the stunning mountain peaks, or the raging rivers as we have seen on this trip,...
