21 February 2010 Geauga and Ashtabula

We spent a cold, sunny day caching and waymarking in Geauga and Ashtabula. I wanted to post the LeRoy Grange to the Grange category. While we were in the area, we stopped at the Thompson Town Sqaure for a cache and a few Waymarks.

1869 Thompson Town Hall

Thompson Gazebo

Thompson's Gazebo is interesting. Each section of the ceiling of the gazebo is made from a different type of lumber that was donated by a local resident. The sections are made from ash, sassafras, hemlock, chestnut oak, maple, white oak, white pine, and cherry.

The South LeRoy Meeting House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Jefferson's Town Hall has architecture that is different for this area.

We hadn't planned on visiting Jefferson, but we weren't being very successful at caching and there is a Zippy location at the diner. In the end, we found only three caches. I had to dig two out from the ice. The heavy snows have made much of the counties a parking adventure.
