Sentimental Sunday: Old Toll Gate from the Sandusky-Columbus Turnpike

This long slender pike on top of a post once served as the toll gate for the Strong's Ridge gate along what is now Route 4, at the corner of Route 113 and Route 4. Now it is on the grounds of Historic Lyme Village. The sign below lists some of the fees charged at the old toll gate.

Learn more about this historic road at the Sandusky History blog, and visit Lyme Village to see what life was like for many of our Ohio ancestors in the 1800s.
