Camp Jones

Rt. 19, Mercer County

Not a real description of the camp, but if you click on this link: RBHayes
and check volume two, then enter a search for 'flat top' or 'Camp Jones' you can read Rutherford B. Hayes' diary notations and some letters. I really got a kick out of him complaining about the "cold weather" up on the mountain.

I wonder if JD Cox would have been a U.S. President too if he wasn't Constitutionally prohibited (Born in Canada). Seems like Ohio had it's fair share of Presidents.

Sign will need repair very soon, or it will be down!
