Tecumseh
  ROSS County
Witness the spectacular re-enactment of the life and death of the great Shawnee leader, Tecumseh! Come to our large, tiered amphitheatre, nestled in the hardwood forest of Sugarloaf Mountain.

Here beneath a canopy of stars, across the quiet waters and from the encircling forests, a spectacle of unbelievable proportion explodes around you, as horses gallop down from the hills, arrows whisper overhead in deadly flight, flintlocks bark, and artillery thunders through the woodlands!

The concrete canal structure hazards provide for some unexpected entertainment and challenges.
Lake White Club
  PIKE County
The Lake White Club is one of the areas oldest with timbers dating back to the original log cabin built on the site in the mid-1820's. The cabin officially became the Lake White Club in 1938, serving fried chicken to visitors of the newly formed lake. The restaurant, and its chicken, quickly became so popular that a huge screened in front porch had to be added to the log cabin dinning room. A few years ago, the log cabin was converted into an entrance foyer and lounge. Now the porch is enclosed and they offer a legacy of fine food dating back to over a half-century flavored with a dash of Ohio's history
  PIKE County
A day trip to Pike County would not be complete without a drive along scenic Rt.-335. ￿ For it is there, just 3 -1/2 miles South of where Rt.335 intersects Rt.-32, that you will find one of natures wonders.￿ The Perfect Tree.￿ This large hardmaple tree is estimated to be at least two-hundred years old. What makes this tree so perfect? ￿ You be the judge, come see it for yourself. Magnificent in any season.
The Emmitt House,
  PIKE County
In addition to offering fine food and drink, the Emmitt House is also the center of many and varied community activities. Dances, Amateur Nites, Comedy Performances, Tournaments, even Psychics will make appearances throughout the year.

In 1989, a year long construction project was completed and the Emmitt House was restored to resemble its birth in 1861. Due to modern demands, some interior changes were made but whenever possible, the historical flavor and design was retained.
