FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT’S WESTCOTT HOUSE Completed in 1908, The Westcott House is Frank Lloyd Wright’s only Prairie Style home in Ohio and one of the country’s finest Wright house museums. The Westcott House underwent an inch-by-inch $5.3 million restoration in 2005 and each of its features—from art glass and original hardware to hand-decorated walls and massive urns—has been returned to its 1908 appearance. Call for 90-minute, docent-led tour times offered Wednesday through Sunday.  1340 EAST HIGH ST. SPRINGFIELD, OHIO 45505

HERITAGE CENTER MUSEUM

HARTMAN ROCK GARDEN

CHAMPIONS CENTER

The spectacular City Building & Market built in 1890 is now home to the Heritage Center Museum. Extending an entire city block, the Heritage Center houses an extraordinary museum that faithfully recounts the history of America’s Heartland. Known by architectural aficionados for its stunning Richardsonian Romanesque design, the Heritage Center hosts approximately 30,000 visitors each year. Adults and children alike are sure to be fascinated by the exhibits on display and you can’t beat the admission cost…free!

What began as a modest concrete fish pond in H.G. (Ben) Hartman’s back yard is now revered as a folk art masterpiece. The Hartman Rock Garden includes over 250,000 individual stones that combine a mixture of history, religion and depression-era pop culture. Among the Hartman Rock Garden’s many unique attributes, the sheer scale of the work and its contextual location in a residential neighborhood, contributes greatly to its status as an iconic “outsider” art site. Fully restored by the Kohler Foundation in 2009, the Garden is open daily from dawn to dusk with no admission charge.

The Champions Center – located within the Clark County Fairgrounds – is the Midwest’s premier equine and expo center. The center plays host to regional and national equine shows, specialty breed dog shows and other special events. Check their online schedule and make plans to stop by for an event. Admission is always free.

The Pennsylvania Bank-style house is furnished in the pre-Civil War 1850s period style. The house was built by Daniel Hertzler – a wealthy mill owner, who legend has it, still haunts the house to this day. Open on Thursday afternoons and by appointment.

The David Crabill House is of late Federal design. It is located in Moorefield Township, Clark County, Ohio, on the grounds of the Clarence J. Brown Dam and Reservoir. It is of the 1825-1830 style architecture. It was restored, starting in 1973, and was open to the public after completion.

Built in the 1850s, the Gammon House was an Underground Railroad site. Originally owned by a black abolitionist named George Gammon, the famous stop features secret passages leading into the attic and a tunnel into the basement.

MAD RIVER FISHING Ohio’s oldest trout stream is the Mad River. Stocking of this river began in the late 1800s with the introduction of brook trout. Then in 1884, rainbow trout were introduced to the stream; and in 1931, ODNR switched to stocking brown trout in the stream. Today the stream is stocked annually with 6”-8” brown trout to supplement the population. Fly fishing is good on the Mad River, as there are good hatches of mayflies, caddis flies, and other popular trout foods throughout the spring, summer, and fall months.

Greater Springfield offers “foodies” an impressive array of options from seasonal menus and French bistro-style, to great steaks and some of the best pizza in Ohio. No trip to Springfield is complete without lunch at Mike & Rosy’s deli, and you’ll never forgive yourself if you don’t grab a glazed donut at Schuler’s Bakery downtown!
