It’s time to celebrate spring by attending the 5th Annual Steubenville Eggsibition which features thirty-two 18” to 36” uniquely designed Easter Eggs strategically situated in storefronts in the downtown area.
The Art Eggs should be visible from outside for those who aren’t ready to enter the shops. Maps for the egg hunt will be available at Leonardo’s Coffeehouse and participating shops. After finding and viewing all the Art Eggs, “egg-hunters” will be able to stop in at headquarters and choose a prize mini-egg. All the Art Eggs were painted by local artists and range from traditional Pysanky to depictions of scenes, personalities, or literary images.
As an added attraction this year, the Public Library of Steubenville & Jefferson County has created an Easter Egg Storywalk to coincide with the Eggsibition. Pages of a story will be placed around town near each of the “hidden” eggs. Participants can collect a map from the Library [...]

Follow the Pioneer Trail through Southeast Ohio

Marietta, Ohio was the first settlement in a new frontier over 225 years ago and its early pioneer spirit can still be felt throughout its community. The history of Marietta and the courageous pioneers who settled here are the topics of David McCullough’s newest book, “The Pioneers”. The Pulitzer Prize winning author chronicles the efforts of the original families who worked tirelessly to settle the area and create a thriving city at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum Rivers.

Visitors can delve into Marietta’s past and trace the progress of the pioneers as they explore the [...]
