‘Garden Tour’ set for Ohio Rural Heritage Festival

FlowersBy Martha Jacob –
During the upcoming 2016 Ohio Rural Heritage Festival set for Sept. 1-3 in Ripley will include a very special ‘Garden Tour’ for Saturday, Sept. 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Village of Ripley will host this free-of-charge tour, according to coordinator of the event Jane Zachman and Sara Goldsberry.
According to Zachman, between 12 and 14 of the most beautiful gardens in the village will be featured during this self-guided tour.
“We will also be featuring some of the best pieces of art for in the garden by local artist Jeanne Grant,” Zachman said. “It will  include a tour of the Ripley Museum and a historic home ‘inside’ tour.”
The Ripley Museum is located in an 1850’s home featuring 10 rooms with collectibles dating from the late 18th century up to the mid 20th century.
The  federal design house is similar to many built in Ripley in the 1850’s. It features three fireplaces and a curved staircase. The parlor, with its shuttered windows, contains a Valley Gem piano which was manufactured in Ripley in the 1870’s.
“The tour will begin at 106 North Third Street where walkers will register,” Zachman said. “There is no charge for this tour and each participant will be provided with the walking map needed to enter the museum and home.
“Following the tour, participants may make advance reservations to attend a 12:30 luncheon at Cohearts Riverhouse Restaurant which includes a guest speaker, Steve Boehme of Goodseed Nursery. Mr. Boehme will speak on gardening tips. Lunch is only $9 and reservations must be made in advance by emailing s.goldsberry@att.net.”
