    On an isolated hilltop in Muskingum County, Ohio, ten statues stand forgotten, hidden by the woods that has grown up around them. Presidents Washington, Lincoln, Grant, Garfield, McKinley, Harding and Theodore Roosevelt share the hill with Civil War Generals McPherson and Sherman, and a WWI doughboy.

These are the sculptures of Brice Baughman, an undertaker and self-taught stone carver. Starting in the late 1800’s, he created a unique memorial park that attracted tens of thousands of visitors. Now, a century later, the park and its unique statues are forgotten. This is the story of Baughman Park and the vision of an extraordinary man.


The softcover, 8" x 10" book has 81 pages and more than 100 black & white photographs and illustrations.
