Aug. 17, 2010---Took the shuttle tour to see and hear about some of the history of Marietta, Ohio.

This lady was born and raised here and did a good job of narrating as we toured the city.

This interesting architectural design is the original home of the lockmaster for lock #1. Lockmasters used this home from the 1840's to the 1940's.

Harmar Post Office

Post Office was in a very narrow building. Old grinding wheel out front.

Indian burial mound preserved on the grounds of the cemetery called "The Mounds Cemetery".

Another Indian mound. It is flat on top and was used for ceremonies.

Sign providing information about the Barber House.

Beautiful old home for generations of the Barber family.

Oldest former bank.

Well preserved building of block construction.

Visited the Lafayette hotel again today.

Hotel on the Ohio River bank behind Carol.

Lovely setting in the lobby area. Glare in the windows is the Ohio River.

Sign over the doorway in one of the rooms in the Lafayette.

Unique hanger for the chandelier is the design of a large ships wheel.

Harmar Bridge crosses the Muskingum River from Marietta to Harmar Village.

On the other end of this old railroad bridge there are some rail cars on saved for exhibition.

Dream Manor can be seen from the old rail crossing. Looking down in the Muskingum River at Marietta Harbor marina just off the Ohio River.
