Behind-the-Scenes at Endangered Zoar
It was sunny and warm . . . and that was before the intrepid visitors descended into the basements and climbed into the attics. However, the history and resourcefulness of the Zoar community founders was evident long before NOC members got to the detailed tour.
Thirty individuals took a scenic drive through the country and into quaint Navarre and Bolivar before arriving at the historic Canal Tavern of Zoar for a pleasant lunch in June. From the Tavern it was a short trek over the Tuscarawas River and the remanents of the Canal into Zoar to explore the historic, endangered town. Most members ofted to take the once-a-year special tour behind-the-scenes and learn more from the very knowledgeable docents during the summer afternoon and head home contrasting modern day with historic yesteryear.

Lakehouse Inn and Winery Wrap up
The day wasn't quite as sunny as predicted. The lake breeze was not quite as warm as we would have liked. However, that didn't stop 46 people and 25 cars from making the tour from Bainbridge through horse country into Chardon's square and onward into the heart of Ohio's wine region. The group ended their 1.5 drive at the Lakehouse Inn and Winery right on the shores of Lake Erie, enjoying the view, the wine, and their meals.
