A Day in Greenville Ohio should start out at the famous Maid-Rite Gum Wall, Just Kidding (gross!) I mean the historic GARST museum, for fans of Annie Oakley. The best parts of the museum are dedicated to this interesting historical figure. There are also recreated streets of old village shops. Other exhibits include Native American culture, local military activities, pioneer life, prehistory, and the Treaty of Green Ville. See the Annie Oakley Ohio Historical Marker here. Annie Oakley’s last residence (and place of death) is also in Greenville.
Next, the Shawnee Nature Center contains some interesting animal and nature displays. The adjoining Prairie Preserve provides a nice walk through forests, wetlands, and habitats. There is also a natural play zone for kids. Don’t miss the Tecumseh Ohio History Marker. See the trail map here.
To continue “A Day in Greenville Ohio”, it is nice to walk down Main Street and see the shops and restaurants. Along your way, you can see the beautiful courthouse and the Treaty of Greenville Ohio Historical Marker. There is also a statue of Annie Oakley.
Finally, don’t forget to stop by the famous Maid-Rite Gum Wall. This may be too weird for some people, but, when I was there, the line for food went clear out into the street blocking traffic. Maybe they do serve the best burgers in Ohio as they claim! The line was too long for me to find out.
I was out of time, but I promised myself the next time I was in town I would stop at the Greenville Falls State Scenic Area and explore the area. The pictures look beautiful! Here is a map of the trails. I hope you enjoyed “A Day in Greenville Ohio”!
