Wait, What, Whoa….that’s Wilmington, Ohio

Ralph and I decided we would make a stop in Wilmington, Ohio because we are from Wilmington, North Carolina.  Well we don’t follow the big stops where most people would go, we go where we feel a connection.  Ralph said he wanted to harass (just kidding) the police department there so they could exchange patches.  No other reason to go there but we are glad we did.  Such a cute little town and friendly people.

I think painting is an incredible talent but imagine trying to take your idea in your head and putting it on the side of a building.  These next pictures are painted by Jason Morgan.  Actually when I walked by he was on the  scaffold working and I did not bother him.  Now I wish I had.  I think he’s amazing!

The Murphy Theater getting some renovations.

I went crazy taking pictures of the inside and when I went outside I was going to cross the street and take a picture of the building and forgot.  I only have one brain cell and it’s on vacation most of the time.  I borrowed this outside picture from pintrest but the rest are mine.  In 1998 county commissioners decided to restore the interior of the courthouse.  The renovation took 2-1/2 years to complete.

Wilmington Ohio has a Quilt Trail.  They had painted 200 frames and put them on the barns in the county.  This is a picture of one of the quilt paintings on the barn.  There is also geocaching trail that is located along the quilt trail also.
