The Lincoln highway from 1913-1920 went through Galion
coming in from the east along present day Oh 309 and leaving in
the west along present day Oh 19.
The Galion Theater is not within the Historic Uptowne
District. But its plastic exterior is for sale.
Can you guess which one of these has been restored
and is now used for shopping and apartments? They are across the
street from one another.
I was interested in the design at the top of these
buildings (though the lower brick work is interesting as well)
The red arrow (which I added) is pointing to what I
found interesting here. Pepsi supports the Army & Navy [surplus
store]. Someone is hard up for money
in December, 2004)
The town center for Galion. Interesting setup they have here
for parking and pedestrian movement (note the traffic islands
and traffic lights)
The old Galion train station, which was being rehabed when
I was here in July, 2004.
A old art deco style garage that can be yours if the
price is right (it is up for rent)
Seccaium was the scene of one of the last battles of
the Revolutionary War. Supposedly someone built an Amusement park
near here as well back in the late 1800s/early 1900s (no trace
of that left around). However there are these two memorials left
standing here along Oh 19 between Bucyrus and Galion. The concrete
point was erected in 1920, the state historical marker (which
is in need of a new coat of paint) was placed there in 1976. You
will miss both of them if you blink.
I think the historical
marker does a pretty good job of explaining this buildings importance
