Day 1
Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Depart Metro-Detroit area for Cambridge, Ohio. Enjoy a stop at Carousel Works in Mansfield, Ohio. Carousel Works is the largest manufacturer of wooden carousels in the world. At present, Carousel Works is the only company in the world with the in-house capability to manufacture wooden carousels from design to installation.

Enjoy lunch on your own in Mansfield. Continue to Malabar Farms, a 1000 acre farm with a Big House. This is a historic landmark since 1939 and now it is a State Park. As we tour the building owned by Pulitzer Prize writer Louis Bromfield, be sure to notice the suite where Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall spent their honeymoon. Louis Bromfield was an organic and self-sustaining gardener, who wanted to keep farming alive. Our next stop is at Landoll’s Mohican Castle for dinner. Enjoy the stately majesty of times past in a luxurious castle, located in central Ohio. Continue to Cambridge for a 2 night stay, and ready for the next activities. (D)
