New Ohio Guide: Huffman Prairie

May 6, 2012

Huffman prairie does not look like much at first. There are no museums or monuments in sight, not many buildings either. In fact, it looks pretty much like a prairie. But this place oozes history in a way few places can. This is where powered flight became practical, where the plane could be controlled and flights didn’t end with faces full of dirt anymore. Huffman is also part of the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Park and here we meet ranger Bob Peterson.

Have you seen the huge daffodil farm? It is in Oakwood. Find Ridgeway Road and Peach Orchard ….it is a little north. Absolutely amazing and gorgeous!

The Dayton Philharmonic is doing Home City Stars. The trumpet guy is doing a musical interpretation of that poem by T.S.Eliot, The Hollow Men and Scott Stoney will recite the text.

Gearfest is the Midwest Outdoor Experience. All kind of things including camping, competitions, regional music acts, exciting demos, and Friday and Saturday, a night beer garden. It’s at the Eastwood Metro Park.

A new, interactive exhibit is at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery and it is all about the Miami Valley’s extraordinary water resources. It’s called "SPLASH."
