Tourism Initiative to Launch in Southeast Counties
We hope that you can join Ohio’s Hill Country Heritage Area and Melinda Huntley, Director of the Ohio Tourism Association on Wednesday, May 29th from 1-4pm at the newly reopened Burr Oak Lodge near Glouster as we take the next steps in our organization’s Collaborative Tourism Initiative. This initiative aims to bring partners together to creatively develop unique tourism experiences that attract new markets to experience our region’s authentic historic, cultural and natural environment assets. We have chosen the Hocking River and Muskingum River Watersheds of southeastern Ohio as the target for this initiative (Fairfield, Hocking, Vinton, Athens, Meigs, Perry, Coshocton, Muskingum, Morgan and Washington Counties).

Black As I Wish To Be Tells Story of Pike County’s East Jackson
Ohio’s Hill Country Heritage Area recently completed a collaboration with documentarian Lu Olkowski who produced Black As I Wish To Be– a public radio documentary on an intriguing story about race in Appalachian Ohio, gathered in the Pike County community of East Jackson. The documentary was made for State of the Reunion, a public radio series aired locally on WOUB-FM. Thanks to the Ohio Humanities Council for their support of Ohio Hill Country and Ms. Olkowski in completing this excellent work. Listen to the documentary here.
