Monday Morning Coffee: New Paris, Ohio

Enjoyable weekend.  Between the Futbol and baking, time pasted quickly.  Also a brief watch as Fed defeated Joker in Cincinnati.  Find pre-season football a bit of bore. More Futbol this afternoon, as Liverpool takes to the pitch.

Did find time to travel over to New Paris, Ohio. 

A brief background: It is a village in Preble County with a population a touch more than 1500. The area was in the tribal grounds of the Pottawatomi, Miami and Wyandot Indians. The earliest settlers arrived in about 1806, with many of them coming from near Paris in Bourbon County, Kentucky.  They named their new community after the one they left.

Off course, today there is a Masonic lodge hall.

Also, in this part of the country, antiques are big business.

Check back later in the week.  With cooler weather promised, will get out and gather more Midwest images.
