Ohio historic sites open their doors to celebrate 50th anniversary of National Historic Preservation Act (photos)

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Without it, our country would be a little less historic.

Fifty years ago next month, President Lyndon Johnson signed the National Historic Preservation Act, which has helped protect and preserve tens of thousands of buildings and districts throughout the United States.

Ohio History Connection, the state's historical society, is celebrating the anniversary with a special 10-day event, during which more than 100 historic sites across the state will showcase their past -- and their present -- with special tours, programs and events.

Some of these places aren't normally open to the public; others are offering a closer look at what may be familiar spaces.

Perry's Monument won't open in 2017


PUT-IN-BAY — An iconic and popular monument symbolizing peace on Lake Erie will not reopen in 2017.

Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial rises 352 feet above Put-in-Bay and dominates the South Bass Island skyline. The monument will undergo a series of repairs this year and likely won’t reopen to guests until 2018.

For your enjoyment, here are a few photos of mine taken of and from the monument in June 2015:

Painesville's Gage House (1858) is under new ownership by an outfit called Fairport Rentals. This house, a funeral home back in my day, was moved from its original location about six years ago, a few blocks up the street. It was purchased a few years ago, with the then-new owner making big promises to fully restore it and bring it back to life. It seems like it never happened. Here's hoping for a better day :(

https://www.wolfehousebuildingmovers.com/testimonials/city-of-painesville-oh-historic-brick-house-move/

"This home was believed to be designed by the architectural firm of Heard and Porter, the Gage House was built in 1858 as an investment for Charles Avery. Charles Heard and Simeon Porter were the acclaimed architects of Cleveland’s Old Stone Church and numerous homes along Euclid Avenue (Millionaire’s Row). Charles Heard was the apprentice and son-in-law of Jonathan Goldsmith, a nationally recognized master builder of the Greek Revival period in northeastern Ohio during the early 1800’s. Several Goldsmith projects include the Seeley House, Mathews House, Morley House, and the original Fairport Harbor Lighthouse."

Either there is a $60-$80 million project or the entire historic complex gets demolished? That's a shameful lack of creativity for a city that has a lot of creative people....

Great, another historic district :( While I'm not opposed to this sort of thing, it would be nice to actually see businesses coming back downtown. I guess in the meantime maintaining what's left is a good idea. As you can see if you watch the video (Grand Aerial Tour de Painesville--lol), the results of the destruction caused by Painesville's misguided urban renewal scheme of forty years ago (!) are readily apparent (a block in the middle of a historic town shouldn't look like a suburban car dealership :P). On the bright side, there are a lot of upgrades to the adjacent parkland, even expanding into some of the areas along the riverfront. Well, if you can't go shopping, you can go fishing (and at least there's a lot of parking available :) )

"The Downtown Painesville Organization has begun the process for a National Register historic designation.

On Feb. 13, the DPO Design Committee met with Ohio History Connection Survey and National Register Managers Ross Nelson and Susan Tietz to discuss the proposed Painesville Historic District and the National Register nomination process.

The design committee is comprised of about six members who were responsible for establishing this proposed district of more than 50 structures that are over 50 years old.

I used to covet this home everytime I walked past it (and as I recall, the owner, Kathleen Cotter, was on city council, when I was a teen--100 years ago--lol)--

^Imagine the impression that that film would have made when screened at rural movie theaters.

Right. I'm surprised at how immaculate the city appears in a lot of this footage.
