Eric Grohe Murals
Eric Grohe Murals

"Great American Crossroads" depicts many stories and scenes in the mural. The people and activities were chosen from various times throughout the last 100 years. Over 130 Bucyrus citizens modeled for the artist, 88 of whom can be found in the mural. The mural artist is Eric Grohe of Marysville, Washington. Also designed and painted by Eric Grohe during the summer and fall of 2001, "Liberty Remembers" honors veterans of all wars. The portraits of 284 Crawford County veterans flank Lady Liberty, who is embracing a dying soldier. During the painting of this mural, the events of September 11, 2001, unfolded. Immediately after, Eric painted a phrase on the banner which he taped to the mural and later incorporated in the painting. The phrase, "Our flag still waves. Her torch still shines," can be seen on the back arch of the monument. About 25 minutes from the campground.

Coopers Mill Bucyrus Oh

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE

David and Miriam Cooper began Cooper's Mill in 1969 alongside their Bucyrus home with just a picnic table and a desire to share their homegrown fruits and vegetables with others.  Nearly 45 wonderful years have passed and the Cooper's tradition continues – only under the new ownership and management of brothers Jason & Justin McMullen.  The McMullens continue to produce the same high quality, homemade jams, jellies and apple butter which customers have become accustomed to and love using the same recipes that have been passed down for generations.What makes Cooper's Mill products so different from the rest?  Our irresistible apple butter is cooked slowly in 50-gallon copper kettles over a wood fire, and our delicious jams and jellies are made in small batches using so that the best flavor and consistency is obtained every time.  We never use any artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives.  All Cooper's Mill products are proudly made in Bucyrus, OH using our own original recipes.
