Chillicothe was founded in 1796 and served as capital of the Northwest Territory. Chillicothe can be found at the junction of State Route 159 and US 50. For some reason Chillicothe intreges me so. Not sure why, it is not close, do not know what their is to do their other than a few things, do not know a cool store to check out, or restaurants.
Doing research has found a few interesting places to check out. These places range from Hopewell Culture National Historical Park, James M. Thomas Telephone Museum, Bainbridge Historical Society Museum, Chillicothe Railroad Museum, David Nickens Heritage Center, Lucy Hayes Heritage Center, Phoenix Fire Co. #2 Museum, and the Ross County Heritage Center. There are also many places to eat while in Chillicothe and not just your standard chain place. The is Asian food at Bangkok Palace. This place sounds good, Old Canal Smokehouse, but will have to wait as they are closed for a short time do to a fire. There are also many coffee houses in Chillicothe. This one looks like it is worth trying out, Schlegel’s Coffee House. A visit in the Summer is not complete without a seeing Tecumseh! Outdoor Drama. It runs June 8 – September 1, 2012 (Monday – Saturday) at 8:00 pm. If you have never seen an outdoor drama it can be a really fun way to spend an evening.
