We’re Going to the Zoo Zoo Zoo…

Saturday, April 15th, 2017

A great picture of the (Beechwold) zoo and partial image of the plat of Zooland, the subdivision on the west side of North High Street. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Steamships in the Olentangy! I guess the zoo picture was mostly, well, aspirational. Rumor has it that the Zooland housing lots were developed to raise funds for the zoo. You can read more about the zoo on my web site here. [Image courtesy of Wendy Bayer]
