Johnny Appleseed Memorial

There is no parking lot for this; you'll have to turn around at the vacant building a little way down the street and come back to pull off the side. Watch your step through tall grass.

It's interesting to see the different types of stone they used to make the monument, but some had fallen out, and it was obvious there haven't been any repairs done in a while.

Rock cairn memorial to Johnny Appleseed.

Johnny Appleseed Memorial

This photo is of a memorial to Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman, 1774-1845). The memorial is made from rocks donated from people all along the route that Johnny passed over. It reads: "Without a hope of recompense, without a thought of pride. John Chapman planted apple trees and preached, and lived and died."
