Roscoe in Coshocton County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Hay Craft and Learning Center - 1987
This building, dedicated in the spring of 1987, was named in honor of Raymond Hay as a lasting memorial to the late Coshocton businessman for the many contributions he made to the Roscoe Village restoration and to Coschocton County. It is also interesting to note that Raymond Hay's uncle, Huston Hay, was a toll collector in Roscoe in 1845. This structure was designed to look like two earlier buildings - a house built c.1857 and another, located next to the home of a blacksmith in the 1930s. These two houses were beyond restoration and were razed prior to construction of the present building.
