It’s a very impressive building, this memorial to President McKinley. At the close of the Nineteenth Century he was a much beloved president. Then he was assassinated and the nation mourned. But then his memory was quickly overshadowed by the energy and policies of his successor. McKinley is rather forgotten. So much so that if you want to tour the museum in Niles, Ohio you have to go to the library across the courtyard and have the librarian unlock the door so you can self guide yourself through the exhibits then let yourself out. But it was extremely educational and well worth the trip. Later in the day we visited the McKinley Monument in Canton, just as they were locking the doors, so we’ll have to go back there one day. Finished the day with a yummy seafood dinner with Dave, Rhonda, and Riley.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
