As always, I spent time photographing one of my favorite places, Dayton History at Carillon Park. I hoped to enjoy some quiet time in the new exhibit on The 1913 Dayton Flood, but it was packed. Many families were out enjoying time together, and there seemed to be a good many out-of-town guests.
While passing through the Dayton Flood exhibit I ran into Alice Hoover, and her fiance, David. Alice’s daughter, Amy, had been a voice and piano student, and I became quite fond of this wonderful duo. Alice is currently pastor of the North Bend (Ohio) United Methodist Church in Southwestern Ohio – as Southwestern as you can get. The church’s property had once been the plantation of President William Henry Harrison. His tomb, along with several members of the Harrison family, is a short distance away, overlooking the Ohio River.
