Know Before You Go

Key things do see or do while visiting the site:

While in the area, see the John and Annie Glenn Historic Site. The highlights are its living history characters who take you thorough John Glenn’s boyhood home as though you are visiting during the Great Depression or in 1944 during WWII. 

See the famous “S” shaped bridge in nearby Cambridge and the “Y” bridge in Zanesville 
If you are heading east or west, continue on the National Road, US Route 40. 

And you can always go antiquing!

Scenic Byways and All- American Road 
To be designated as a National Scenic Byway, a road must possess at least one of these six intrinsic qualities (historic, cultural, natural, scenic, recreational, archaeological). The features contributing to the distinctive characteristics of the corridor's intrinsic qualities must possess regional significance. To receive an All-American Road designation, a road must possess multiple intrinsic qualities that are nationally significant and contain one-of-a-kind features that do not exist elsewhere. The road must also be considered a "destination unto itself.”
