The Marylee Lee Bendig
A house of history lives on in Hamilton Township
By Linda Dillman
There are many families in central Ohio
who can trace the history of their homestead
back more than 200 years, but one
such home near the banks of Big Walnut
Creek can claim the honor.
Built in 1841 by Amer Rees on a road
named for him, the stately three-story
brick Reese Road home is now owned by
Chris Hann and his wife.
The mansion originally consisted of a
two-story front façade with an attached
rear portion–all adorned with handmade
fretwork, but around 1860 a side wing and
tower were added as part of a remodeling
According to “Columbus Vignettes,”
published in 1966 by Bill Arter, Rees
bought 1,000 acres, which included an original
homesite (built in 1813 according to
the Franklin County Auditor website) in
1840. Rees’ son, Washington, who was
born in 1837, later took over farm operations
from his father. He built a sawmill
and distillery, making use of the nearby
creek and farmland throughout the area.
According to Arter: Rees employed 100
men, most of whom lived on the farm nearby.
When the Scioto Valley Traction Line
passed through this area, the settlement
got the name of Rees Station. Whisky taxes
put Rees out of the distilling business. The
farm shrank. Washington Rees died about
The Reese Road mansion, which consists
of eight rooms, and 159 acres was sold
to Raymond Hann in 1923 by Washington
Rees’ daughter-in-law, Julia. Horsepower
at the time was in the form of four legs and
harnesses dating back to that time still
hang in a structure attached to the main
Charles Obetz was a frequent customer
when the distillery was in operation.
In a May 25, 1841 entry, Obetz
bought 36 gallons of whisky at 20 cents

Gretchen Hann, left, and David Lindsey, right, are the latest caretakers of a Reese
Road homestead with a legacy dating back over two centuries.
Gretchen Hann–Raymond’s greatgranddaughter–and
David Lindsey now
live in the 3,958 square-foot home. She,
along with her father, Chris, who lives less
than two miles away, continue the farming
tradition in addition to operating a seasonal
Lockbourne Road family farm market.
“My grandfather bought the house and
property in 1923,” said Chris. “He and my
grandmother just got married and wanted
a farm. He bought it at night because
everyone at that time was on a party line
and he didn’t want anyone to know his
business and how much he paid for it.”
A hand drawn picture of Raymond
hangs on the wall where an ornate wooden
staircase leads to the second floor with
rooms outfitted with their original fireplaces.
Chris’s great-grandfather started farming
land along Lockbourne Road across
from Hamilton Township High School in
1895. Another relative, Frederick Hann,
owned and farmed land on Hendron Road
in Groveport over 100 years ago.
While diving through the family’s
archives, Chris found a whisky distillery
ledger documenting the purchase of local
grain by Rees over 180 years ago to supply
the distillery. Familiar family names from
throughout Hamilton Township fill the
pages of a handwritten 1840-1846 ledger
with sales and purchases involving–
among others–Swisher, Rathmell,
Stimmel and Rohr family members.
Charles Obetz was a frequent customer
when the distillery was in operation. In a
May 25, 1841 entry, Obetz bought 36 gallons
of whisky at 20 cents a gallon but
received a credit for returning a barrel.
During the same month, Rees purchased
669 bushels of corn from Christopher
Shafer for $106.08.
With no bridge at the time, crossings
were made at a low point in the river south
of the main house.
In addition to farming, Hann said his
family also leased parcels of land on the
west side of the river in the 1930s and
1940s to wealthier families from Columbus
who built small cottages to escape the summer

Even though the heritage of the house
fell into the hands of three different families,

Mark Tyler in a Feb. 9 announcement. “He

over the last 13 years and he will be deeply

two young children, Tyler and Danielle. A

to COVID restrictions, a family-only service
was held on Feb.15, but live streamed

Native Americans and the Ohio frontier
The tranquil waters of the Scioto River were once
anything but placid.
The Scioto River and its tributaries, such as Big
Darby Creek, Big Walnut Creek, and the Olentangy
River were once hot beds of activity as Prehistoric and
Woodland Native Americans used them as major
A new book by Janet Shailer, “Trouble on Scioto’s
Waters — Soldiers, Frontiersmen & Native Americans:
1725-1815,” explores the Native American history surrounding
“From 1754 — 1814 fighting raged within the state
between Native Americans and their adversaries,”
Shailer said. “Those years are vital to understanding
the history of Ohio. By 1843, the last of the Native
Americans left the state after the signing of the Treaty
with the Wyandots. A mere 18 years later the Civil
War would start.”
The importance of the Scioto River watershed to
Ohio’s early history cannot be underestimated. This
river was a transportation artery for the Shawnee,
Wyandot, Delaware, Ottawa, Seneca, and Miami on
their way to camps in the Pickaway Plains and beyond.
The area between the Scioto River and the Big
Darby Creek was once a cradle of Prehistoric and
Woodland activity. This area alone has artifacts from
the Paleo-Indian, Adena, Hopewell, and Fort Ancient
cultures. Battelle Darby Metro Park along Big Darby
Creek, for one, is continuously being studied by
archaeologists for its numerous mounds and Native
American artifacts that are still being discovered
there. Later the European fur trappers and frontiersmen
understood their significance, followed by soldiers
from three different countries.
“I have included chapters on five men who were
important figures in central Ohio’s early history,”
Shailer said. “They include Col. William Crawford,
Simon Girty, and Jonathan Alder plus Native
Americans Blue Jacket and Tecumseh. The Indian

knew the Ohio country
was a special
place and they
helped to make it so.
“I believe that to
understand the history
of a great people,
we must thoroughly
study them, including
ground where they
once lived,” said Shailer. “Part of this book is a guide to
visiting some of those sites. Native Americans entered
what is now central Ohio about 9,000 - 10,000 years
For people interested in both Prehistoric and
Eastern Woodland Indians, the Middle Ohio Valley is
an archaeologist’s gold mine.
“The Ohio Historical & Archaeological Society estimated
in the 1880s there were once 10,000 mounds
and earthworks in Ohio alone,” said Shailer.
“Unfortunately, urban development has left us with
few remaining sites to see and explore.”
The Ohio History Connection has documented
dozens of Prehistoric and Eastern Woodland sites all
along the edges of the Scioto River.
“In Jackson Township/Franklin County, archaeological
maps show dozens of Native American sites
along the edges of this waterway,” said Shailer. “Other
creeks in the Scioto River basin were also important
for development. On the western side of Franklin
County lies Big Darby Creek, another important transportation
artery for several tribes. In the
eastern part of Franklin County, Alum
Creek runs south from Mount Gilead and
joins Big Walnut and Blacklick creeks in
(now) Three Creeks Metro Park. The Adena
built at least seven mounds in the Alum

“Janet Shailer has captured a long-overlooked
portion of Ohio’s history, a past era
that we are still feeling the effects of today,”
said Rick Palsgrove, managing editor of the
Columbus Messenger Newspapers and
director of the Groveport Heritage Museum.
“The stories she tells of the Native
Americans, military, and frontiersmen who
helped shape Ohio are fascinating. Her listing
of pertinent historical sites that help
tell the story of those times is helpful to
those who wish to see the places where this
history took shape.”
Janet Shailer is a former editor with the
Columbus Messenger Newspapers and has
written two other history books including
“Images of Grove City,” and “Images of Modern
America: Grove City.” She also wrote the novel,
“The Austerlitz Bugle-Telegraph: A King, A
Goddess and a Chronicle of Deception,” as
well as three children’s books.
This contest is for the birds
By Linda Dillman
Dust off your tools, uncap your paint,
and design and create a new home for a
feathered friend by participating in the
Grange Insurance Audubon Center birdhouse
The contest invites entrants to use
their skills–commercially produced birdhouses
or assembled kits are not
allowed–in crafting a one-of-a-kind birdhouse
with a base not exceeding 18 inches
square and no taller than 36 inches
(not including a post) and ready for outdoor
installation. More than $950 in
awards are offered.
According to Audubon Center Office
and Communications Assistant Sandy
Libertini, entries must be functional,
bird-safe and aesthetically pleasing, they
should demonstrate a way to attract
wildlife by creating a unique backyard
habitat, and makers are encouraged to
use environmentally friendly materials.
“The idea for the competition actually
came up in our November Advisory
Board meeting by one of our board members
who had participated in an architectural
design-oriented bird house competition
in 2015,” said Libertini. “We liked
the idea and wanted to kick-off national
Bird Feeder Month with a competition
open to all ages to engage the public,
encourage interest in our mission and
give them a reason to visit the center.
The center had previously initiated ‘Art
at Audubon,’ but due to COVID-19 was
not able to follow-through with exhibitions
etc., in 2020. My goal with ‘Art at
Audubon’ is to offer artistic/creative competitions,
present art exhibitions featuring
local, regional, national and youth
artists, develop an artist-in-residence
program and offer a venue for mini popup
art vendor shows the second Saturday
of every month beginning in April.”
The deadline for entering the competition
is March 13 and, while entries close
on that date, the birdhouses will remain
on display and the public is invited to
vote for the People’s Choice Award
through the center’s “First Day of Spring”
event on March 20 from 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
All contestants are given the opportunity
to donate their birdhouses to the Native
Plant Backyard Challenge auction after
“This auction will be offered to over
200 participants in this challenge,” said
Libertini. “Proceeds will benefit the center’s
mission and programming. The
People’s Choice Award birdhouse will
remain at the center with a name plaque.”
There are five different categories for
the birdhouse competition and entry fees
are: professional, $25; adult (18+), $5;
teen (13-17), $5; and group entry (all
ages), $5. The awards are People’s Choice
$250, Professional $250, Group $150,
Adult $150, Teen $100, and Youth $50.

The Grange Insurance Audubon
Center on the Whittier peninsula is
looking for submissions for a birdhouse
competition now through March
13. Pictured here is center communications
assistant Sandy Libertini in one
of the complex’s bird feeding areas.
Center reopened Feb. 9 and is located on
a former industrial site on the Whittier
Peninsula on the banks of the Scioto
River in downtown Columbus. The center’s
mission is to conserve and restore
natural ecosystems, focusing on birds,
other wildlife, and their habitats in Ohio
by promoting conservation and biodiversity
through education and advocacy.
The 18,000 square foot center is a certified
green building that uses geothermal
heating and cooling, a plant-filled
green roof, recycled materials and other
sustainable construction materials to
reduce the center's carbon footprint. It is
located within the boundaries of Scioto
Audubon Metro Park at 505 W. Whittier
“In 2001, Audubon began meeting
with city officials to discuss a plan for the
Whittier Peninsula, an industrial strip of
land that, coincidentally, is positioned on
a major migratory bird flyway,” said
Libertini. “The integration of a nature
center and new park with appropriate
commercial and residential development
was at the heart of this plan.”
In 2003, Audubon Ohio, Franklin
County Metro Parks, and the city of
Columbus agreed to collaborate on a project
to reclaim and restore 160 acres on
the Whittier Peninsula. Of this acreage,
Metro Parks leases 84 acres, and
Audubon Ohio subleases five acres from
Metro Parks for the Audubon center. The
Whittier Peninsula was renamed The
Scioto Audubon Metro Park in early 2007
and the Grange Insurance Audubon
Center opened in August 2009.

Cael Shaw has big plans
By Linda Dillman
During the Feb. 8 Hamilton Local
Schools Board of Education meeting, the
first Hamilton Township High School student
to pursue a social science and civic
engagement honors diploma presented
part of his final requirement–a public
presentation to the board.
“I plan on using this honors diploma to
pursue a career in environmental law and
political science,” said senior Cael Shaw.
“When I started down this path, I wanted
to go to medical school and be a pediatrician,
but after sitting at home for several
months, it took some thinking and everything
I’ve done in the last four years has
geared me more towards a law or civic
Shaw said in addition to serving as a
member of a superintendent’s student
advisory board, he is also president of the
HTHS Environmental Club and is passionate
about the issue.
“I feel that being an environmental
lawyer in the future is a perfect combination
of all the things I’m passionate about,”
said Shaw, who was named U. S.
Representative Steve Stivers’
Congressional Student of the Month, is a
six-time Mid-State League academic allleague
in soccer/swimming, and varsity
captain of both teams.
Stivers also nominated Shaw for an
appointment to attend the U.S. Naval
Academy and Shaw waiting on the application
to be accepted. His list of awards
includes numerous fair honors, the Sierra
Club Alter Service Award and the Ohio
University Trial and Law Institute Most
Promising Future Professional Award.
Shaw is a Groveport Special Olympics
volunteer swim coach and serves on Ohio
Attorney General Dave Yost’s Teen
Ambassador Board. He has also served as
a volunteer poll worker.
“The past election I worked the polls as
a Youth at the Booth member at a local
precinct in Obetz as a machine judge and a
door greeter,” said Shaw. “It was a really
long day of doing anything and everything.”
His long-standing interest in civics was
fostered in sixth grade when he joined a
Hamilton Township Intermediate School
Ohio Model United Nations team for the
first time and continued as a member
through 12th grade.
“I believe OMUN is my most favorite
thing I’ve participated in except for sports,”
Shaw said. “It helped me develop my love
for civics. It’s part of the reason I’m so
involved and passionate when it comes to
civics and global politics like the U.N. I’m
proud to be a Ranger and will always be
proud to be a Ranger.”

Digging a hole
One summer day in 1966 I started digging
a hole in the backyard.
I was 10 years old, going on 11, when, on
a hot July afternoon, I decided to take an old
shovel from our garage with the intent to dig
a hole in the patchy ground near where our
old trash burning barrel stood.
I should explain the “trash burning barrel.”
Back in the 1960s it was common in our
small town for every yard to have some sort
of metal barrel to burn household trash. This
was in the days before air pollution laws
The ground around the trash burning barrel
was patchy and rough, so I figured I
would dig there so as not to mess up the
backyard grass, which also doubled as our
neighborhood baseball field, football field,
and basketball court.
I plunged the shovel into the somewhat
soft ground and started digging. The sound
and visual of me randomly digging naturally
roused the interest of the other boys in the
neighborhood who soon crowded around to
see what I was doing.
“Why you digging a hole?” one asked.
“I don’t know,” I said. “Kinda felt like it.”
“Are you looking for something buried
there?” asked another kid.
“No, just digging,” I said.
Perplexed, the other boys watched for a
while because, in the slow paced summer
days of our youth, kids often spent time happily
lazing around between ball games, bike
rides, and other such things.
I kept digging and soon the other kids
bored of my pursuit and wandered off leaving
me there in the quiet of the yard with only
the sounds of the birds and the shovel biting
I’m sure my mom, looking through the
window of our house,
noticed my random
digging, but she did
not intervene, no
doubt because she saw
no harm in it.
I dug all afternoon
and created a hole in
the ground that was a
cross between a circle
and a square in shape.
It was about four to
five feet in diameter
and about four to five
feet deep. I even made
a few muddy stairs to make it easier to get in
and out of the hole.
I was pleased with the hole. I used the
steps a few times. I looked the hole over. I
never did find any man made objects in the
ground I dug up, but I was not hoping to.
It was then late afternoon. I admired my
creation, and it was a creation because the
hole was something that was not there before
I dug it. It felt satisfying to make this hole, to
feel the dirt and to see its brown richness, to
handle the shovel, and to focus on a simple
task that had no purpose other than to create
I took one last look at the hole in the
ground, took up the shovel, and then, shovel
full by shovel full, filled the whole back in,
returning the ground roughly to its former
It felt good.
