What's Great in Dayton - Social Distancing Edition: April 3 - 9, 2020


We are still all at home so here are some ideas.

Everyone is going outside and walking, and not only is it good exercise, it is a great way to look at things. If in the suburbs, I see what is happening with the houses. Are all the houses the same? Has some part been re-modeled? Does it have a porch? Has somebody mowed the lawn?

And when I walk around downtown Dayton, I look at the buildings. and I love looking at the old buildings that have fainted painted signs and old windows and old doors.

The Woodland Cemetery, which is close to the University of Dayton, is open and a wonderful place to see interesting monuments and get exercise.

Last week I told you the Dayton Metro Library has an eCard so I’m going to try that and, I assume, that the library in your area also has an online system.

There is this website called DECODING DAYTON. It has videos showing and talking about various city streets and buildings. It explores the essential coding of Dayton and how it has reshaped over time.

And there is The Dayton History Books Online. Their website is dedicated to placing historical items about Dayton Ohio online and you can see lots of things.

While Ohio schools are closed, Ohio History has developed a number of engaging and educational history resources that you and your family can easily access on their website. Check it out at:

Gotta go….
