A brisk little walk through Massillon

Yesterday I was working in Orrville and so when I was done I decided to go for a walk in Massillon.  Honestly, my walk was going to be at least a mile longer, but it was 28F outside and I got COLD!  I started out at Top of the Viaduct and thoroughly enjoyed my Teriyaki Chicken (only $5!) and, as you can see from the picture, I really enjoyed the chocolate cream pie.

I walked down to the other side of the viaduct and I was already cold at this point so I decided to go cruise around in Deals for a moment to get warm again.  Once I had thawed a little bit I continued on to the Massillon Museum.  Even though they were between exhibits, I still enjoyed seeing the Immel Circus and I am always fascinated with the Sparks Circus picture on the wall.  The expressions on the faces of the people in that picture intrigue me.  After looking around upstairs I went down to the lower level and had a brief chat with Oscar and Harvey.  And I even got to chat with Libby for a few before I left!  (Isn’t that funny, the only live human that I spoke with while I was there and I didn’t get her picture. :)

I left the museum and headed back up to the Top of the Viaduct and my car.  It’s interesting the things you see along the way when you stop to look, isn’t it?

This trip was a total of 3766 steps which equals 1.57 miles.  I’m looking forward to coming back to Massillon again when it’s a bit warmer and walking the other way in both directions.  Hopefully I’ll be able to time my visit so that I can stop and see the Andy Warhol exhibit when it’s open at MassMu.

MassMu is waiting for you! (part two – Immel’s Circus)

MassMu is waiting for you! (part two – Immel’s Circus)

This post is the second part of my visit to the Massillon Museum.

My favorite thing of all at the museum was Immel’s Circus.  I mean, wow, all the pieces were carved by hand and most of them were carved by Dr. Immel himself!  I certainly wouldn’t have that kind of patience.

And so, without further delay is a slideshow of this amazing circus…

Click here to find out more information about the circus which was carved by Dr. Robert M. Immel, a native of Massillon.

And because I forgot to mention this in my last post, I’ll let you know that the Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East, Massillon, OH 44646.  Their phone number is 330-833-4061 and they are open Tuesday thru Saturday from 9:30 to 5 and on Sundays from 2-5.  If you’re in the area, you should definitely stop by.

So until next time, here’s to Dr. Immel, Harvey, and Oscar, and here’s to you!
