1. Flatwood Schoolhouse Marker
On August 3, 2012, while visiting the Logan County Historical Museum in Bellefontaine, Ohio, I was surprised to learn that the Flatwood Schoolhouse Marker had been seriously damaged and was no longer on display at its original historic site. Instead I learned that it is currently in storage in the basement of the Logan County Historical Museum, awaiting repairs and eventual remounting.
