More about this marker. This marker is attached to a column on the east terrace of the Ohio Statehouse. When it was placed there, it was outside the building, but an atrium built in 1993 to connect the statehouse with the nearby Senate Building now encloses the plaque and many of the columns. The marker can most easily be found by inquiring at the information desk in the rotunda of the statehouse or the reception desk in the Senate Building. Exterior doors to the atrium itself are generally not accessible from the outside.
