Multiple Markers

— Site of the Annual Labor Day Festival —

These five acres of land are given by Dr. H. L. Mikesell, his wife Helena,
and daughters, Lydia Jo and Jane (Younkman). Dr. Mikesell, a physician
in the United States Army and in West Liberty, believed that experiencing
the great out-of-doors was essential to good health. The family joins the
Lion Club, the Village of West Liberty, and others in gifting these
acres of land in hopes that they will provide happiness for children who
will run and play on their lush green grasses; joy for their parents and
families who watch and cheer for them; renewal for adults young and old
who exercise upon the land seeking sound bodies and minds; and a con-
tinued sense of community for those festival goers who refresh and
strengthen their connection to this landscape each year and who remind
us that at least once a year in The Village of West Liberty, Ohio, you can
"go home again". May these generously donated acres provide home,
built of nature for anyone who wanders upon them, and may anyone who
does so find themselves better, stronger, and more able to live life to the
fullest. That the way Dr. Mikesell would have wanted it.
