A Patchwork of History and Nature
Imagine a place that has the enduring coziness of a small-town atmosphere from days gone by, yet still resounds with the spirit of today. Imagine a place where you can take a long, easy step back in time to see the prairies that once covered portions of Ohio in the morning, play a round of golf, and watch the sunset over the Ohio River while sipping a glass of local wine.
