Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster and… Bookwalter, Ohio?

Long story short… when I was a kid I found this little town called Bookwalter, Ohio in an old road atlas. Situated in the “devil’s triangle” of Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati, I often wondered just how small it was. My grandfather, a truck driver, once told me that he went through the tiny town and stopped to talk to some of the residents.
Well, this past weekend I finally saw it for myself. And it was a good thing I didn’t blink, because I would have missed it all! Bookwalter, Ohio is just one minor tornado away from being a distant memory, I’m afraid… just two intersecting country roads and a collection of ramshackle house-wannabes.

Thankfully, the only business in town is a church, so I was able to snap a few photos to prove once and for all that yes, Virginia, there really is a Bookwalter, Ohio… and don’t forget to “Try Jesus!” 😉

Stay sick!
