Artist's Description

Medway, Ohio is situated in Bethel Township of Clark County in South Western Ohio. I have read in an old book (one of them) that this area is one of the most productive areas of land (foliate), agriculturally speaking, in the world. Along this “Scenic Byway” (which is very beautiful, in some sections) runs parallel, the Mad River. This river feeds an enormous underwater aquifer that helps to keep our farmland rich. There is a very wide valley here, sided with limestone cliffs. Some of these rock formations are several miles wide/apart down toward the southern run of Mad River, but along where the river comes out of Springfield, about seven miles east of Medway, these cliff formations are as close as maybe two hundred yards apart in places. This entire valley area is full of wonderful and scenic rural areas. Most of the land is privately owned, but there are a few public accesses in the form of preserves and parks. One of the most important features along the Byway leading out of Medway is the site of a battlefield between the Native Americans and the early Revolutionary forces around the time of my state’s inception and expansion. I’m a bit fuzzy on many details, but my area has a lot of history, pre-Colonial era civilization. I could go on with the info and anecdotal references, so maybe I’ll save it for the book.
