At the Vermillion Valley Service Plaza, motorists can check out a brief history of the Ohio Turnpike. The exhibit lays out 60 years of Ohio Turnpike milestones (celebrating the Turnpike’s 60th Anniversary). Mounted about the exhibit is one of the original Ohio Turnpike signs that welcomed travelers to the highway.
When I started working at my full time job (buying wrecked cars at insurance auctions), I spent many miles on the Ohio and Pennsylvania Turnpikes. I appreciate their rest stops, which I would use to take breaks or grab breakfast. So I loved spending some time walking through this exhibit while returning from today’s Wild Bill Hart Hangover Race at Sandusky Speedway.
