Worthington's Historical Treasures - May opportunities to see history in your backyard
"May is National Preservation Month" according to PreservationNation.org:
"May is National Preservation Month and this year’s theme is “Discover America's Hidden Gems.” Communities from coast to coast are filled with unexplored historic treasures—and May’s the month to celebrate them!"
If you are in central Ohio you can discover history on the streets of Worthington: Discover Worthington's Hidden Gems (many out in the open.)

Worthington Farmer's Market
The summer season of the "Olde Worthington Farmer's Market' starts next Saturday, May 12, 2012. You will have three opportunities to visit the Olde Worthington Farmer's Market in May 2012!
Typically the 1st Olde Worthington Farmer's Market there is a plant sale, flowers, herbs... There are also meat, cheeses, baked goods and more. Last year Worthington had Green on the Green the same day as the first, Olde Worthington Farmer's Market of the summer season (the winter season of the Worthington Farmer's Market ended, last weekend.) The Old Worthington Business Association page I find online is still referring to the first Farmer's Market of the summer season in 2011.
The front page of the Worthington Historical Society site (link above ) refers to Plant Day and has a special invitation to an event at Wren House on May 12, 2012:
"You Are Cordially Invited… to see Lynn Bird, Worthington artist, in her studio, as she paints the mural "Six Weeks and Seven Hundred Miles"
Lynn Bird's studio is upstairs from Wren House at 693-1/2, Suite 102. The Worthington Historical Society site says "--just go up the stairs and turn to the right" to find the "Out On A Limb Studio, home to Bird Graphics."
The studio will be open on May 12 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. The mural celebrates the journey of the first 100 settlers in Worthington.
A final event in May to look forward to is the Worthington Memorial Day Parade on May 28, 2012
More about this Worthington event later this month
