Welcome to the OJHS Website and our first Historical Driving Tour around the area you know as “home.”  This is an interactive tour and the more “fun” you put into it, the more “fun” you can have. So be creative and use your imagination to step back to a time when Oregon and Jerusalem Township was a wooded forest and the dirt roads followed Indian Trails. 

Registration: by October 14
Cost: FREE
Tour Dates: October 1-28

Visit all 10 and enter to win!

Description

There are 10 destination sites.  Follow the Clue to each destination. Once you arrive, prove you found it by taking a photo or short video as directed in the clue.  Need more help?  Click into the “Want to Learn More” box.  After you have completed the tour, upload your photos and videos from all 10 destinations to Facebook and tag @OREC to be entered in raffle drawings worth more than $1000. Prizes will be drawn on October 31 on OREC Facebook Live from 1 – 3 pm. 

Complete the tour on multiple days or to be entered in the grand prize drawing of a one night stay at Maumee Bay State Park, challenge your group to take the entire tour in one day and time yourself while doing it.  Enter your finish time in your Facebook post. 

OJHS is hosting a “Sweet Ending Drive-Thru” on October 31 from 1 -3 pm for all tour participants. We encourage tour participants to dress up in your favorite Halloween Costumes and travel to Brandville School Museum at 1133 Grasser Street for a drive thru party with historical characters, vignettes and Halloween Candy  (think of the train ride at Cedar Point –it will be much like that).

OJHS is excited to bring local history to life for you and your group.
