Hiram, Garrettsville, and Hart Crane

There are two famous villages three miles apart in Portage County, Ohio: Hiram, home of the great little college where James A Garfield was a student, and later teacher and principal; and Garrettsville, where the great American poet Hart Crane was born and raised (and by the way, where his father invented Lifesavers candy).

Below are a few photos from these villages:
