A Recent Visit To Gretchen's Lock
There is a huge pile of logs and other debree in front of the bridge. That came from the heavy rains we had last week of course. There are downed tree branches from the record snow fall we experienced as well.
My crew and I are camping here this summer, though we have not determined a date yet. I love this park. I could and have spent many hours down here exploring the area looking for ghosts. Now is a good time to go down so you can see the lay of the land, so to speak. You can make out the stone wall above the rest rooms, see the remnants of a house near the site of the old house, see where parts of the original Grist Mill once stood, and get a good idea of how large lock #42 really was. If history interests you, April is an excellent time to explore Gretchen's Lock.
I have been researching and ghost hunting since February of 2003. I have also explored a good portion of the Columbiana County area. I am currently working on my own Tour Business and would like for it to grow beyond the tri-state area. Tours will include overnight adventures to reportedly haunted buildings to ghost hunt with experienced ghost hunters. Projected opening of this business, ideally, will be in 2014. Local tours of the tri-state area will be included.
