Newark, Ohio's troll at the corner of South Park Place and South 3rd Street is a legendary figure. I have yet to find an undisputed true story, but the legend is that the troll was made in the likeness of a failed grocery store owner. The grocery store owner was disliked by many. It is said that any business in view of his face will not succeed and it may burn. Many businesses in the area have failed and burned and the downtown area has struggled for many years.
The old jail in Newark, Ohio is one creepy building. It's performed many duties since it was shut down long ago.
Lighthouse carwash is just like any other except for all of the color they used. It really stands out in strip mall land. I wonder how many car washes they get just because kids are begging to go through it?
