Yesterday, several homeschool families from our church went on a Ohio history field trip. We visited Viaduct Park, and learned about the past of a mill and electrical plant that were there previously. The two business shared the water supply – the mill had the water during the day and the electrical plant during the night. Most people didn’t need electricity during the day, they just needed the light at night. Slightly different than it is today. 🙂
Afterwards, we stopped for lunch at a nearby picnic shelter.
