BUCKEYE LAKE – Here’s a great last minute gift idea – playing cards with historic images of the Buckeye Lake Amusement Park.
The brand new cards were produced by the Greater Buckeye Lake Historical Society Museum. Covering a span of over 100 years, each card face highlights a photo ranging anywhere from the late 1800’s to more recent history. From historical buildings and events to historic figures and other photos that bring out the unique history of Buckeye Lake.
“The face cards are designed the way “souvenir” playing cards used to be printed with round photos, historical facts and fun information on the faces”, according to playing card collector and Newt’s Playing card owner, James Esteph. “Buckeye Lake’s deck is a real beauty. The museum had such a large array of photographs in their collection”.
Cards are available for $12 a deck at the museum on Walnut Road in Buckeye Lake. Call 740-929-1998 or go to www. buckeyelakehistory.org. Museum hours are Tuesday – Sunday 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
