Cambridge Courthouse - Moved to Pennsylvania

(New Stanton PA) Hi 86 Lo 62 - On Tuesday we took a drive around Cambridge, OH, a typical small midwestern town. I love courthouses and the Guernsey County Courthouse in Cambridge is an exceptionally beautiful one. (Click on the pictures to enlarge them.)

Some of the statues and memorials around the courthouse grounds.

There's a working phone booth on a street corner. You don't see many of those anymore.
We love this beautiful church in downtown Cambridge. 

Friday we traveled 122 miles east to New Stanton, PA. Jim is very good at finding nice RV parks and this one is no exception. We arrived at Fox Den Campground around 1:30. The park has over 200 sites spread over many acres of hilly terrain.

Our site.

The office has a store, and a small exhibit of Native American artifacts. There's also a totem pole out front, seen here on the left.

A pavilion.

The hills around us are very pretty.

Nice swimming pool.

The owners have a house in the park up on a hill. The tower on the left has a siren on top and a bell under it. We're thinking it may be to warn of approaching storms, but we're not sure.

The fishing lake.

We're here for 12 days. Jim is going to the Pittsburgh Pirates game tomorrow, another major league ballpark he can mark off his list. We have some other things planned for the next week, so stay tuned.

See you in a few days.

I grew up just south of Butler, PA so I am familiar with the lay of the land up that way. It was a lot nicer than the part of Texas I live in, but since I have been down here for half my life, I don't think I could take the winters up there anymore. Thanks for the post.
