This is the site of a Revolutionary War veterans grave, along with the early settlers of Lake County, Ohio. A stone marker from the Veterans Administration accompanies the old soldier's resting place, sitting on a small hill overlooking a former watermill complex at Paine Falls. Our forefathers got the pick of the prettiest places around here for their burying grounds.

The towpath from Ohio's canal system winds through The Cuyahoga Valley National Park, offering beautiful views to the thousands of bicyclists and hikers that follow it daily. These 19th century sheds are near the visitors center in Boston Mills.

This trail through the dunes of Mentor Headlands State Park take you to the breakwall where you can step over the large stone blocks to reach the Grand River light. The sand has built up so much over the years that the beach nearly reaches the light on the west side of the wall. When I first went out there in the 50's, the wall was bordered by water for about a half-mile.
