A house of history lives on in Hamilton Township

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

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

project.

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

1913.

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

house.

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.

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

heat.

Vince Payne passes away

Hamilton Schools mourns

the loss of its spokesman

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Hamilton Local Schools lost one of their

own on Feb. 8 when Director of Public

Relations Vince Payne passed away unexpectedly

after complications from surgery.

“We will all miss his positivity, kindness,

and his willingness to help others,”

and friends of the Franklin County

Historical Society toured the Hann home

after a car caravan escorted by law enforcement

drove seven miles from Columbus to

the site.

Even though the heritage of the house

fell into the hands of three different families,

two share a common bond of community

service.

Washington Rees served as a Hamilton

Township trustee and Chris Hann has

served in the same capacity since 1992–

continuing a centuries-long stewardship of

the land and the lives of the people living

upon it.

wrote Hamilton Schools Superintendent

Mark Tyler in a Feb. 9 announcement. “He

has been a great asset to our school district

over the last 13 years and he will be deeply

missed.”

Payne is survived by his wife, Lisa, and

two young children, Tyler and Danielle. A

GoFundMe account was set up in lieu of

flowers to help support his wife and children

at https://gofund.me/ac7653d0. Due

to COVID restrictions, a family-only service

was held on Feb.15, but live streamed

to the general public.

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

transportation routes.

A new book by Janet Shailer, “Trouble on Scioto’s

Waters — Soldiers, Frontiersmen & Native Americans:

1725-1815,” explores the Native American history surrounding

these waterways.

“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

began to drive the

Native Americans

out of Ohio permanently.”

Shailer said the

Native Americans

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

walking the

ground where they

JANET SHAILER

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

ago.”

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

Creek Valley.”

The book includes a guide to those who

would like to visit sites once occupied by

these First Ohioans. Books may be ordered

online from the publisher Orange Frazer

Press at www.orangefrazer.com or via

Amazon.com.

“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

Staff Writer

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

competition.

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

the competition.

“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

St.

“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

Staff Writer

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

career.”

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

were enacted.

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

the earth.

I’m sure my mom, looking through the

column

Editor’s Notebook

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

Rick

Palsgrove

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

a hole.

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

state.

It felt good.

Messenger Newspapers.

we belong to

has purchased the following

classifieds. Determining

the value of their

service or product is advised

by this publication.

In order to avoid misunderstandings,

some advertisers

do not offer

“employment” but rather

supply the readers with

other materials designed

to help their clients establish

mail order selling

home. Under NO circumstance

should you send

any money in advance or

give the client your

checking, license ID or

credit card numbers. Also

beware of ads that

claim to guarantee loans

regardless of credit and

note that if a credit repair

company does business

only over the phone it’s

illegal to request any

money before delivering

its service. All funds are
