Below: A group of vases referred to as "Vasehenge" is located on the west side of the Y Bridge. These vases have been placed In a circle mimicking the famous "Stonehenge". However several vases were missing. And as seen in the one close-up that The Two RV Gypsies took of one of the vases, it is obvious that this display has not been maintained for a long period of time. The Two RV Gypsies are going to try to notify the Chamber of Commerce about this disgrace since these vases are advertised in their "Visit Zanesville" brochure.

historyThe Muskingum County Courthouse is a historic building in Zanesville, Ohio. It was designed by T.B. Townsend and H. E. Myer, and built in 1877 with stone, brick, and slate in the Second Empire architecture style. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The site served as the capitol of Ohio from October 1, 1810, until May 1, 1812, and the 9th and 10th sessions of the Ohio General Assembly met here at the building that was formerly at the site before those sessions were returned to Chillicothe in May 1812. The former building on the site was then used as the Muskingum County Courthouse until current one was constructed in 1874. The 1809 date stone from the old building was incorporated into the new building and may be seen over the front steps. The Muskingum County Courthouse is located in Zanesville on US Route 40, the National Road and Main Street. The bell in the courthouse was manufactured by the same company that made the Liberty Bell.

Below: Signs just before the campground about a one-lane bridge. So, After parking their RV in the campground, the two RV Gypsies drove their car through the bridge just to experience it. Their car's windshield was very dirty, so the pictures did not come out very well.

As soon as the two RV Gypsies exited the bridge, there was a sharp curve. If a car were to be coming from the other direction, it would be hard to see it ahead of time and that could be a disaster.

Below: The two RV Gypsies turned around and went back through the bridge tunnel, and met another car just as they exited.
