Been feeling under the weather all week and to cheer me up the hubs whisked me off to one of my favorite places, Oberlin College for the afternoon. I of course had my camera in tow, and was able to capture some pretty great shots.
The Memorial Arch is a beautiful structure that honors missionaries from Oberlin who were killed during the Chinese Boxer Rebellion.
Oberlin was an active terminus on the Underground Railroad and has an awesome sculpture that is constructed to look as though railroad tracks are emerging from underneath the ground. This is by far my favorite piece of art in Oberlin. During the warmer months, the tracks are surrounded by plants that were used by slaves for nourishment and medicinal purposes. Talk about attention to detail!
I just like this because it just feels old-fashioned to me. Nothing more than that.
We ended our history walk by re-fueling at Lorenzo’s, a local Italian eatery. This place has the BEST vegan pizza with whole wheat crust that I have ever tasted. MMMM!
If ever in the Northeast Ohio area I highly encourage you to make the trek over to Oberlin. It is full of so much history and amazing architecture, as well as some of the tastiest eateries you will find!
