Scenes From Scenic Vista Park, Near Lisbon, Ohio

I GREATLY LOOK FORWARD TO THE JACKSON IN THE VALLEY CIVIL WAR REENACTMENT THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF THE NEW LOCATION! THIS IS AN AWESOME, LITTLE KNOWN PARK IN THE AREA. QUIET AND SECLUDED, I AM EAGER TO ACTUALLY INVESTIGATE THE AREA AND SEE WHAT KIND OF LEGENDS IT HAS TO OFFER. SELLS COVERED BRIDGE IS A GOOD STARTING POINT. iT IS ACTUALLY CALLED SELLS,ROLLER MILL BRIDGE 35-15-01#2, Multiple Kingpost Truss, built in 1878, removed in 1988 (FROM WHERE I DO NOT KNOW, YET.) & rebuilt in 1994, AT SCENIC VISTA PARK. APPARENTLY IN 1993 IT WAS BURNED BY VANDALS AND THEN REBUILT. FIGURES. :(
SCENIC VISTA PARK WAS AQUIRED IN 1977 BY THE COLUMBIANA COUNTY PARK DISTRICT, ONE OF ITS FIRST AQUISITIONS.
THIS PARK HAS ABOUT 250 ACRES TO ENJOY. iT IS ALSO NO STRANGER TO CIVIL WAR REENACTMENTS. IT HAS HAD MANY OVER THE YEARS, BUT CEASED AROUND 2009 DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS.
THE NEXT STEP FOR ME IS TO GET OUT THERE AND INVESTIGATE THE AREA. THERE IS ALSO A LITTLE CEMETERY OUT THAT WAY CALLED LEE CEMETERY, NAMED AFTER A MAN BURIED THERE WHO FOUGHT IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. I HAVE BEEN OUT THERE BEFORE, CHECKING IT OUT, BUT HAVE NOT FOUND MY PICS OF IT YET. MAY HAVE TO GO OUT AND GET MORE. ;)
IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON THIS LOVELY PARK, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. AND REMEMBER, GHOSTING 12 PARANORMAL WILL BE OUT THERE MAY 25 GIVING THE GHOST WALK FOR JACKSON IN THE VALLEY CIVIL WAR REENACTMENT-RETURN TO SCENIC VISTA!
