Today I thought I’d give you a pictorial tour around Glendale. I love this historic community. It’s the only village in Ohio designated as a National Historic Landmark. It was incorporated in 1855 and many of the homes date from that time. Another loveable feature about the community is that its mascot is a squirrel, and images of squirrels are everywhere. It’s fun looking for them as you drive around. Actually, after reviewing my pictures I think we might spend a couple of days in Glendale – it’s too pretty not to linger on this charming neighborhood.
My favorite restaurant in the village is The Grand Finale. I’ve blogged about it before – quaint decor with a courtyard garden in the dining room. And some of the best desserts I’ve ever had. Here’s the special when we ate there – lemon blueberry cheesecake. Yum!
There’s also a local bakery that is delicious. They serve scones, cakes, cookies, and excellent pastries. They’ve also started serving lunches now. This is the little sign that sits outside their door – it’s a little wooden bird sitting on a mini muffin pan.
And here’s the other church in the neighborhood – First Presbyterian Church of Glendale. Founded in 1855, its front features magnificent glass with delicate ironwork.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and come back tomorrow for more.
Blessings to you,
