Englewood Dam

Everyday in April, I’m going to be sharing different local sights starting with A and then ending with Z.  Actually I’m not sharing on Sundays except for April 30th.

My oldest has told me that I could be a tour guide of our area because I know a lot of places so during April. I’m going to share some of those local sights beginning with A and then ending with the letter Z.  I’ll be sharing these sights Monday through Saturday.  On Sundays, I’ll be continuing to share my Disney photos.

So where are these local sights?  They are mostly in the Dayton, Ohio area.  Some of them are in Columbus or the Cincinnati area.

 

In 1913, the Dayton area suffered from a terrible flood.  After the flood, the Miami Conservancy District was formed.  Five dams were built – Englewood, Huffman, Germantown, Lockington, and Taylorsville in 1919 and 1920.

The Englewood Dam has as much earth as the Pyramid of Giza.  Pretty amazing.

The Imaginative and Wee One love to go to the Englewood Dam to fossil hunt.  You can find a few fossils.

The Englewood Dam is located close to Aullwood so we usually go to the Apple Fest and then over to the dam for a little while.

Here are some photos of the Englewood Dam from our September 2016 visit.

So where are we traveling to tomorrow?  It’s a local store that loves Halloween.

Have a magical day!
