Fall Foliage and Haunted Happenings
The festivals of summer may wind down in the fall in Stark County, but the fun and attractions are still in full swing. In fact, Stark County is becoming famous for fall events!
Celebrate autumn at the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum’s Boo-seum event, or the Amish Door Harvest Festival, and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail is perfect for biking, hiking, and canoeing deep into the autumn months.
Experience the wondrous fall foliage as only we Midwesterners can by traveling across the county along America’s first transcontinental road, the Lincoln Highway. In fact, eastern Stark County offers a close-up view of several of the best-preserved sections of the original brick road (Robertsville) which earns its historic byway status within our tranquil borders.
Enjoy a fall foliage journey along the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, with its Canton station located on the Lincoln Highway. Looking for something more macabre? Then board the train for the Edgar Allan Poe Express, if you dare!
Do you enjoy tales of things that go “bump in the night?” Then join Massillon history guru Margy Vogt on her spectacular Cemetery Tours, where you can’t help but learn as you are thoroughly entertained.
As Halloween approaches, the bravest among you must stop by Canton’s Factory of Terror, an attraction which shows the spookiest side of the season and which holds the Guinness Record as the longest haunted attraction in the country! As autumn progresses, the landscape may be stark, but Stark County is not!
