Hike with Ansel’s Cave’s namesake to gorgeous rock outcroppings.
In the early part of the 19th century, Ansel Savage lived in a home near the towering Sharon conglomerate rock outcroppings known today as The West Woods’ Ansel’s Cave. If only we could meet and talk to the man about Geauga County back then . . .
Turns out, we can! Attend Living History Hike: Ansel Savage on Saturday, July 29th, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. and Ansel will mysteriously appear to lead a hike recalling his days of yore.
Among the history to be visited: Did the rocks provide shelter for runaway slaves during the Underground Railroad? Did they hide Ansel’s whiskey still during Prohibition? And what’s this rumor we’ve heard about a cheese factory?
This Living History Hike will be held in conjunction with the Newbury Bicentennial. Registration is not required. Please call 440-286-9516 with questions.
Also on deck at The West Woods’ Ansel’s Cave this summer, explore two miles over hilly terrain during the Hidden Gems Hike on Saturday, September 16th, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
