One thought on “Leon Bibb’s “My Ohio”

  1. Hi Leon, how about a myohio segment on the Schedel Arboreteum and Museum in Elmore, Ohio.
    Among the highlights was a phenomenal Japanese garden and an extensive collection of rare Persian Rugs.
    I have been there only once but I just can’t get it out of my mind it was that memorable. Elmore is a quiet city that is nestled between two counties: Ottawa and Sandusky.
    My favorite story is that a persian rug expert and historian came to visit once and upon entrance in the front door he immediately dropped to his knees and pulled out his magnifying glass to inspect what was laying on the floor inside the door and after 15 minutes of close observation with sad eyes looked up at the curator and said “You guys don’t actually walk on this do you”. That’s right it was a rare Persian rug well over 1000 yrs old. They had so many of these rugs they did not know what they had.
