This historical marker is planted outside the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. The building underwent an extensive construction period, with its cornerstone being laid in 1839 and the finishing touches orchestrated in 1861.

With no graves in Ohio left on my agenda on this particular trip in April 2010, my father determined he wanted to continue driving east and try to find a place to sleep in West Virginia instead of Columbus. Therefore, I had to make due with nighttime pictures outside the statehouse. This was the best of the bunch.
