80-Year-Old Ohio Man Puts His Small Town In Focus
ASHVILLE, Ohio (AP) – An 80-year-old Ohio man is working to save old and odd pieces of history in his small town, from the transitional 17-star U.S. flag found in an attic to the futuristic traffic light that hung over an intersection for decades.
Charlie Morrison and a group of volunteers put together Ohio’s Small-Town Museum in Ashville, about 20 miles south of Columbus.

Morrison welcomes more Ashville artifacts for the increasingly full museum space in what was once a silent-movie theater.
