Historical sites up for grabs
(2007-12-04)
(WOUB) - 20 Ohio historical sites are up for grabs now that the state is looking for local groups to take over ownership including six in our region.

This decision by the Ohio legislature comes after operating costs have become too big a burden for the state and one non-profit organization to shoulder.

The Historical Society spends $200,000 a year to operate the sites.

WOUB's Kirsten Brownrigg traveled to one of these sites to get the story.

Among the sites that may also be turned over are the McCook Monument in Meigs County, Our House in Gallipolis and the Story Mound in Chillicothe.
