This photo was posted by Mike Franks on his "Wayne County, Ohio...Remembered" Facebook page. He does a wonderful job with his "ghosts of yesteryear" photoshop skills. Here is a historical photo of the Marshallville depot, with the mill in the background, as positioned by the new asphalt trail currently underway. 



2019 is very likely your last chance to ride the Great Allengheny Passage and the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal (Pittsburgh to Washington, DC) with Rails-to-Trails of Wayne County, hosted by Keith and Carol Workman.  Highly successful trips were held in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.  The 2017 plans were cancelled due to lack of interest.  Our 2018 adventure was on the Ohio to Erie Trail.  
 
As of now, while our limit is 12 people (6 pairs) we have only 7 reservations (3 pairs and  1 male single) at the current time.  Because this is a fundraiser for RTWC, our minimum income in order to successfully see profit is 8 riders paid in full.        
 
Therefore we are extending the deadline to register to January 18.  
Without 8 commitments we will have to cancel the trip.
 
DETAILS: Depart on Saturday August 3 and return Sunday August 11. Non refundable deposit is $200 and total cost is $980 per person.  Email Keith Workman before January 18 to make your reservation or to ask questions.  
   
The Heartland Trail 
Weather permitting, Cavanugh Construction crews continue working on clearing and preparing sections of trail and adjacent farm paths between Forrer Road and Marshallville.  In addition, Zollinger Excavating installed another critical culvert to improve drainage for the trail and for nieghboring property owners.   
 
Drainage preparation along the trail is taken seriously.
Before the culvert work could begin, volunteers cleared many trees from the area.

Sprint and ATT are always present to locate buried cable lines.
