This year in May a new book came out by the Pulitzer Prize winning historian, David McCullough. The Pioneers is a book about the settling of the Northwest Territory in Ohio. McCullough’s books can be very dense with historical facts and stories. Some of his books are best done as audiobooks, listened to while driving. If you want to do a themed trip, get The Pioneers on audiobook and go on a trip down the Ohio River.
Here is a map called the Ohio River Run. This map will give you some idea of places to visit while traveling down the Ohio River.
Two places to visit, that go along with the book The Pioneers are:
We hope this list of places gives some good ideas of how to spend a long summer weekend in Ohio.
