             Giles-Richards Watering Trough                  Clean-up and Replacement Sign







 Use "Contact Us" Page for Questions  


Phase 1 - Every Spring the Watering Trough needs a "scrubbing" to spruce it up for the year. Not a task for the "faint of heart". There is mold and muck to be scrubbed; and weeds to be trimmed; but the location is on a dangerous curve on Old Colerain with limited sightlines. If you're up for the adventure, please contact Jim Jenny to help.


Phase 2 - Sadly, in September 2016, the Ohio Historic Sign for the Watering Trough took a direct hit from a vehicle. The cast bronze sign is in many pieces and needs to be replaced. Contacting the Ohio Historical Society has been first priority; but if they cannot replace the sign, a committee will need to seek a new design for the sign, bids for installation, and coordinate a fundraising campaign. To volunteer, please contact Jim Jenny through the Contact Page.
