The Ohio National Road Association made a stop at the Nelson T. Gant House to reveal a special addition to the property.
The ONRA was approved for a $200,000 grant to install interpretive signs along the National Road’s historic sites. Today, the Gant House was 11th site to receive this honor.
"They would like to see people come out and view a taste of history along the National 40 Road," says Dick Watiker, President of the Nelson T. Gant Foundation.
The signs are set to tell the story of the National Road by highlighting landmarks, homes, events and cultures. The Nelson T. Gant Foundation is honored to be a part.
"For us to try to buy the house, which we did. We paid it off in one year, and to rebuild it into a national museum is what we think is a very worthy goal," says Watiker.
The sign is located in front of the Gant House for all to view and learn about its rich history.
