I decided it was time to try to find a Amish made coat tree. I located the Amish area near Medina (using a map on the back of a brochure for Miller's Bulk Food and Bakery. (where I had stopped bo buy a melon). The map took me to Murdock Road where I found OHIO CRAFT FURNITURE.
I found what I wanted and made my purchase. The Amish woman who sold it to me helped me get it in my car. She referred to it as a "hall tree".
I headed back towards Lockport on Ridge Road. At the corner of Carmen Road, I saw a sign for District #10 Schoolhouse Historic Site. I turned and drove down hoping to find it. I did find it and then realized that I had seen it before, since it was just down the road from Dave and Peggy's house. (so now I was in Middleport)
I was surprised to see a few cars and people around. As I was taking a picture of the school,
I found my way back up to Ridge Road. When I got to the "four corners of "Johnson Creek" I noticed this NYS historical sign.
Further along the Ridge, I stopped at a very nice farmstand and bought two small pumpkins for $3.00. Somewhere on the Ridge, I stopped here
hoping to buy a chuck roast, but they did not have any. They do, however offer some ready made food along with various grocery items.
It was lunch time by now and I was starting to get hungry. My original idea had been to go to Lock City Pizza for a slice, but I was not anywhere near it and could not get there without going out of my way.
So, I stopped at REID'S and bought a burger with sauce and a slice, an order of onion rings and a REAL chocolate shake (one they made up from ice cream, instead of pumping the mixture out of a machine). It was very good.
The HALL TREE fits perfectly into the spot I picked out for it!
