Incongruent Architecture Styles and a Skirmish

Incongruent architecture styles side by side. Old schoolhouse or church next to a new double-wide. Old Washington Ohio along Route 70. The Historical Marker at the side of the road said it was the site of a skirmish with General John H Morgan’s Confederate Raiders. How many signs have the word “skirmish” in them? I read there are three confederates buried in the cemetery. Population (last census) of Old Washington 265. Why the fire hydrant right next to the historical marker? Scroll down for second image.

Why right next to the scenic structure?

  1. So much to see here in first photo and such contrasts. I like the hills beyond…In 2nd photo maybe fire hydrant is to put out brush fires.

  2. Jim knew about this spot and I have pictures of the Confederate graves. I will post them when I find them. That whole area of Ohio, like PA, is very historic.
    As always, your photography is wonderful and I truly enjoy it!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
