Alan Cottrill Sculpture Studio & Gallery

Reviewed By Gloria G - New York City, New York

Outstanding! A simple exterior filled with world class sculpture depicting American life...heroes...politicians and more. A personal experience with the charming and intelligent and creative Alan Cottrell whose work graces the world. Take pleasure in the experience...learn...and feast your eyes. A humble context exposing brilliant work.

DO NOT MISS the two sarcophagus on display on the second floor that Alan has crafted for him and his wife of 40 plus years...and if he approaches you to meet you and talk...ask him to show them to you. All of us should be so lucky to have a perpetual testimony to our love if we are fortunate to have such love on earth. Fortunately I do.

Thanks to Alan and his colleagues for opening our eyes, minds and hearts.

Zanesville Museum of Art

Reviewed By NMDave - Lancaster, Ohio

For a small city of less than 30,000 people, this is a fine little museum. The permanent collection of American and European art, while not extensive, is impressive. As is the African and Asian collections. Zanesville, of course, was a major center of ceramics manufacturing and design and the museum's vast collection will easily keep fans of 19th- and 20th-century pottery happy for hours. In addition, the third-floor galleries are home to a changing array of special exhibits. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

This is a very small but nice place for a walk to view flowers. It is a back yard that has been made into something very nice.

Quiet riverside taproom and patio located in an old industrial space. Comfy furniture has a cozy living room feel.

Traveling through Zanesville & found this "off the beat spot". Walked in a warehouse setting & at first, not sure. Sean approached me & from there everything was off the hook. The pizza, beer & staff was over the top. What a great stop while...MoreWe really appreciate the comments and are happy to have exceeded your expectations. Hope you had a safe ongoing trip and maybe we'll see you again sometime. Cheers.

St. Thomas Aquinas Church

Reviewed By Ben_Theretoo406 - Chevy Chase, Maryland

Saint Thomas Aquinas is but one of a surprising number of really impressive churches in Zanesville. The current building is not the original home of the parish, but developed along a unique and compelling storyline.

Faced with a growing congregation, the pastor realized the present church would soon be inadequate, but was at a loss to find funds for a more suitable one.

It happened that a local gentleman of Quaker descent and of some means told the pastor that he really would like to see another appropriate edifice raised to God. He was a little short of ready cash, but owned a parcel of land a few miles away blessed with a great deal of good building stone. The pastor was welcome to quarry whatever was needed. Presumably utilizing considerable local labor and craftsmanship, the church was quickly erected, dedicated, and consecrated. This all came to pass in the middle 1840's and the church has served the community well for all that time.

Ben and Mrs. Too attended mass here two weeks ago and felt privileged to join the regular parish members in their ruggedly handsome temple.

St. Nicholas Catholic Church

Reviewed By Darlene D - Zanesville, Ohio, United States

Afraid to ask for a guided tour? Don't be shy! Welcome to St. Nicholas Catholic Church. If you plan a visit, please call the parish before your arrival. Bring your camera, smartphone or video camera to record the inside of this historic church.

St. Nicholas was built in 1898 in the Romanesque Revival style of architecture. The church operates a consolidated Catholic school with St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Zanesville. The church building was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on September 25, 1975.

One of my high school friends who no longer lives in Zanesville attended the Bishop Rosecrans High School. After one of our long-distance phone chats, I thought she'd enjoy pictures of her former beloved church. Tom Pitcock, Parish Adminstrator, gave me a guided tour and talked about the history. Afterwards, he asked me to join the church. I thought about it.

After one visit you may fall in love with this church, too, like I did. It could happen.

Lock and Dam No. 10

Reviewed By SilverTravZ - Canton, Ohio

Lock and Dam #10 is a vintage double-chambered lock on the Muskingum Water Trail. Land access through alley at approx 800 Hughes. Locks are about one mile south of dam on diversion channel. Unusual "gate valves" permit viewing of water flows. Both valves and gates are manually operated. Great photo opportunities for enthusiasts. No viewing bridge. Boats transit at irregular times. Hazard for injury to the inattentive. Not a land destination for scout or home schooling groups; these groups should arrange to lock through by boat. Because of the gate valves you will see most of the operation. Before entering the area by land, request permission of lock master. For your safety, expect to be told exactly where to stand.
