Thanks to National Road Yard Sale participants

Editor,

We want to express a big thank you to everyone who participated in the Historic National Road Yard Sale Days in Licking County! We also appreciate the support from The Beacon in helping spread the word about the Yard Sale on this All- American Byway in Licking County’s backyard. The photos and story in the June 9th edition captured the essence of the Yard Sale!

There were lots of buyers and sellers along the Licking County portion of the Road on Saturday when the weather was beautiful. Friday was rainy but shoppers were still out looking for bargains and finding them.

All of the commerce along “the road” reminds us of the early days of the Road when travelers and livestock came in droves across the National Road. Innkeepers were busy feeding the hungry travelers. We have been told that eating establishments were busy on Saturday. We have no confirmation of any livestock sightings!

Our sincere thank you to everyone who participated and made the event successful.
