Ben Franklin's, a hobby shop in Amherst, sells this huge collection of model trains to loyal customers, in addition to pet supplies, fish and a variety of other hobby supplies. The store opened in 1906, and in 1971, Howard Mowcomber took over management from his father.
"I have dedicated customers who have been coming here for decades," Mowcomber said. "They could buy things online, but instead they come here and I appreciate their loyalty."

Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips is a seafood chain that started in Columbus in 1969. At its peak, there were 826 stores in the United States but today only seven exist.
There's one in Northeast Ohio, in the Garfield area. Have you been there?

On this day in 1887, Columbus, Ohio native Granville T. Woods patented the induction telegraph system.This invention sent messages to and from moving trains so railroad engineers could be warned of obstacles and avoid crashes.
Thomas Edison sued Woods over the invention, claiming he had already invented a similar system. The courts sided with Woods and Alexander Graham Bell later bought the rights to the idea. Edison offered Woods a position at his firm, but he declined to focus on his own inventing.
With more than 60 patents to his credit, Granville T. Woods’ work revolutionized telecommunications in the railway industry. He was posthumously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2006.

#OnThisDay in 1833, Oberlin College opened in Ohio. The institution was the country’s first coeducational college, and women were admitted alongside men from its founding. Oberlin admitted African American students beginning in 1835. This photo from the Oberlin College archives shows the dedication of Memorial Arch in 1903. The arch is a landmark on the college’s campus that honors those who lost their lives in the Boxer uprising in China, most of whom were Oberlin College alumni or their families.

The F5D Skylancer aircraft Neil Armstrong flew as a test pilot is currently undergoing conservation treatment.

After being treated, the aircraft will return to the Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio, for display. #ohiohistory #ohccollections #conservation #neilarmstrong #aircraft #skylancer

I recently acquired these four reunion ribbons of the 103rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry (OVI); all four reunions—1922, 1923, 1924, and 1928—were held in Sheffield, Lorain County, Ohio. 
These particular ribbons are in rather poor condition, but I got them for a good price and didn’t want to pass them by. 
The 103rd OVI mustered in service in August 1862 in Cleveland, Ohio. Its recruits were primarily from Cuyahoga, Lorain, and Medina Counties. The 103rd saw action in such engagements in campaigns in Kentucky, Atlanta, and the Carolinas. The regiment lost 248 men: 139 men killed in action and 109 by disease. The 103rd mustered out of service in June 1865. #103rdohiovolunteerinfantry #103rdovi #ohiohistory #ohiocivilwar #ohioveterans #sheffieldohio #sheffieldoh #loraincountyohio #cuyahogacountyohio #medinacountyohio #unionveterans #unioninfantry #americancivilwar #uscivilwar #103ovi

Update on Armstrong’s 1950-1970s F5D Skylancer restoration project: a paint stripping gel was applied, then scraped off the softened paint with plastic scrapers.

Restoration work continued this morning at the John Brown House. Tober Building Company removed some of the trim and siding which Ted Wetzel of The Final Coat took for evaluation. Then, protectant was put in place to prepare for the new wood to be brought in. This also gave us a glimpse of the original construction techniques that were used in the 1830’s, such as the cut marks of the carpentry tools.

#OnThisDay in 1902, Margaret Hamilton was born in Cleveland. She was best known for playing the role of the Wicked Witch of the West in the 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz.” While famous for portraying a villain that terrified children, Hamilton was actually a gentle and soft spoken person and began her professional career as a kindergarten teacher. After helping a friend audition for the 1932 Broadway play ''Another Language,” Hamilton won a part for herself. This was the beginning of a career that spanned half a century, with more than 75 films, 100 plays and numerous television programs to her credit.
