The Gazabo at the Mount Vernon Nazarene University in Mount Vernon Ohio is a popular attraction especially for those wanting to capture a unique photo.  I had never taken a photo of this gazabo at night before and last night it was raining a big so I thought it would be a good time to capture something a photo that was a bit more unique.

The public square in Mount Vernon Ohio features a really nice water fountain.  Most of the year this fountain is flowing with water but during the winter months the city parks department adds Christmas lights and they decorate the public square.  Photo by Sam Miller of REMAX Stars Realty 740-397-7800.  Knox County Ohio Real Estate

As part of our daily series "365 Things To Do in Knox County Ohio" I visited Kent's Ice Cream Station in Mount Vernon, Ohio.  Today is April 15th and I had just wrote those dreaded checks to the IRS and I needed something to help cool me off and a visit to the Ice Cream Station was just what I needed.  The Ice Cream Station has really good food, it's owned and operated by super fantastic people who treat your right and I love their ice cream.  They are located at 115 Newark Road on the corner of Newark Road and Kirk Street.       When you visit the Ice Cream Station it's a little bit like stepping back in time.  Inside it has a very clean and inviting 1950's feel.  Decorated with black & white checkered flooring, old style vintage tables, chairs and booths, a juke box with old music an...

It is very rare that I find a seller this flexible!  The owner of this property is a creative person who wants to sell this home immediately and we have some options for a capable buyer.  The seller is willing to assist the buyer with a 20% down payment to a financially capable and qualified buyer with some very desirable terms.  If the buyer doesn't need the $10,000 seller assistance with the down payment the seller can work with the buyer and give the buyer a $10,000 credit towards home upgrades and or materials.  If the buyer doesn't need any assistance the seller would offer a reduction in price below the $50,000 listing price for a quick, clean and smooth sale. 512 Wooster Road Tons of Potential-Priced to Sell PROPERTY DETAILS $50,000 LISTING INFORMATION MLS: 20101320Bedrooms: 3Ful...

Every community has a landmark location or amenity and the location where Mazza's Restaurant was located is one of Mount Vernon Ohio's highest visibility locations within all of Knox County Ohio.  Located on the corner of West High Street and North Sandusky Street and the real beauty of this location is that these streets are also major connections known as state route 3 / 36, 229 and also state route 13 which connects our community to Columbus, Mansfield, Newark and Wooster.  The visibility and daily exposure this property and location generates is priceless and can provide a major boost for businesses.  This building is older and the majority of the buyers interested in this location will tear the existing building down and build new.   You can view aditional listing information by vi...

Tonight is the annual fireworks display in Mount Vernon, Ohio.  The fireworks will be most easily viewed from the Mount Vernon Avenue area near Memorial Park and by the Mount Vernon High School and sports field.  The fireworks are launched near the Kokosing Gap Trail and the city has closed the bike path parking lot and they also close Cougar Drive where the RC airplane park is located.   There should be plenty of parking at the Mount Vernon football stadium parking lot and also in the Mount Vernon High School and Middle School parking lots.  If you don't mind walking 5 extra minutes I highly recommend parking in the upper lot of the high school or the Knox County Career Center but it is easier to exit once the fireworks have concluded.

Knox County Ohio is a truly remarkable community that is filled with amenities and attractions that are rarely found in counties with populations twice it's size.  The Mount Vernon Hiawatha Water Park is an ideal place to cool off during the summer months.  It features several really nice swimming pools, 2 large water slides, a rope bridge, tunnels, a kiddie pool with fountain, a water play ground, huge umbrellas, pic nic area, snack bar and there truly is a little something for everyone.   Be sure to check out our more detailed feature blog about the Mount Vernon Hiawatha Water Park blog on our real estate website which also includes a nice video that highlights many of the features and fun at the water park.  This is part of our 365 Things To Do in Knox County Ohio series.  Sam Miller...

As part of our 365 Things To Do in Knox County Ohio we highlighted a great place to fly kites in Mount Vernon, Ohio.  The open field next to the Mount Vernon High School baseball fields and soccer fields are the ideal locations because there are no trees or nearly power lines.  There is a great place to launch your kite and if you need to set it down quickly there is plenty of space.  We had so much room tonight that we were able to do some loops with our kite and fly it high and swoop down towards the ground without crashing down.  Be sure to check out check out our featured blog Mount Vernon Ohio Kite Flying.
