12 days of Ohio Holidays – Day #10

The second oldest secular Christmas song – “Up on the House Top” – was written by Benjamin Russell Hanby of Rushville, Ohio. He wrote it while in New Paris.

The house he grew up in in open for tours. He and his father used it as part of the Underground Railroad. It is closed for the winter. Check their website (http://hanbyhouse.org) for more details.
