    Wilmington in Southwest Ohio is the starting place for this special package focusing on the local heritage. Take home memories of your visit to the Clinton County Historical Society Museum, the county historical museum. The museum’s curator will give you a unique look at the past through her “traveling trunk.” You’ll be amazed by what is in it! After touring the museum, with its many treasures and artwork by world-renowned Quaker artist Eli Harvey, it’s time to move on to the Clinton County Courthouse, that recently underwent a major restoration project to restore its original beauty and splendor. The story of the restoration unfolds as you experience the architecture, the art of scagliola, the original hand-painted murals uncovered from layers of paint, and the magnificent dome. Next on the agenda is lunch at #1 China Buffet, followed by a trip to downtown Wilmington where you will experience this nationally registered historic district. A walking-tour is outlined in your own personal booklet, giving you the ins and outs on the beginnings of each. The movie “Lost In Yonkers” found the downtown district to be a perfect backdrop for their film. Travel a couple of miles to Wilmington’s College’s new Quaker Heritage Center. The only Center of its kind in the nation, the facility is dedicated to celebrating the local, regional and national history of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Learn about the Quakers’ long history of activism on issues such as peacemaking, civil rights, racism and social justice. Visiting exhibits and speakers are just part of the experience. Travel to your motel and freshen up for dinner at the beautiful Snow Hill Country Club, originally a tavern built in the late 1700’s. Start out the next morning with breakfast before you head for home.
