Dual Flash Hikes Saturday this past weekend as Karen and I kept us active but cool! Indian Oven Road, namely so in Worthington first stop on Karen’s Worthington crawl.
“On the line of an old Indian trail, in deep woods, is a rocky bluff several hundred feet long and from 15 to 20 feet high, in which is the calcined cavity called the Indian oven. Mr. Martin gives us the following measurements: Depth, 3 feet 8. inches, with a slope of over 45 degrees: height, 2 feet 10 inches; width at inner side of lips, 16 inches; thickness of white calcined lining of oven, 4 to 5 inches. It is estimated that with infrequent use it might take hundreds of years to calcine the rock to its present condition. There is no history of the oven, but it is apparently very old and has had much use.” Historic photos courtesy of Jim Moore.
