Leo Petroglyph is actually in a series of petroglyphs ancient people cut into the sandstone outcrop. The exact age of the carvings is unknown, but based on the degree of weathering of the soft sandstone, the carvings are probably not more than 1,000 years old. The art is likely the...

The cliff face with evidence of spalling on the rockfall outcrop after rockfall in Pomeroy, Meigs County, Ohio. At 2:00 a.m. on December 2, 1971, approximately 830 cubic yards of sandstone, principally in the form of large blocks, fell from a cliff in Pomeroy. Several of these blocks bounded into the mail-sorting room and parking lot of the Pomeroy Post Office, on Second Street, destroying a corner of the building and filling the parking lot with rock. The sandstone cliff at this location is cut by joints that run parallel to the cliff face. Beneath the sandstone is a weak shale that has been eroded, thus providing little basal support for the overlying sandstone. The rockfall material is the Pomeroy sandstone of...

Buckeye Furnace in Milton Township, Jackson County, Ohio. Buckeye Furnace was built in 1851 and ceased operation in 1894. It is one of more than 40 iron furnaces that operated in southeastern Ohio from about 1836 to 1916. During this time extensive oak-hickory forests were clear-cut to provide charcoal for the furnaces, where ore from nearby mines was smelted. For more than a half century some of the best iron in the world flowed from these furnaces. The discovery of richer, more abundant ores in Michigan and Minnesota brought Ohio�s iron industry to an end. Buckeye Furnace was restored in the early 1970s and is part of the Ohio Historical Society's museum site system in Ohio. The image was taken during a teachers...
