  •          It is one of the most beautiful valley settings offered by any major inland waterway in the United States. From the banks of the Ohio River wide, expansive bottomlands stretch to the feet of tall, majestic hills that stand guard over the valley. The setting is between U.S. Army Corps of Engineers mile markers 556 and 560 on the beautiful Ohio. Here the Ohio River is a common thread binding two small communities on opposite banks of the waterway.

Where will I go from here?

  • Whole grains consist of the entire grain seed, usually called the kernel.
