Timken Estate Guard House

Stadium Park - Timken Estate Guard House
By Rob Fisher


Once the Gatehouse to the palatial estate grounds of the Timken Family, this building sits on the west branch of the Nimishillen Creek in Cantons Stadium Park. The H. H. Timken mansion was dedicated in April of 1950 to the Sisters of Charity organization as a newly renovated 72 bed hospital, an expansion of Mercy Hospital.

This is a great little piece of  Cantons history and there has been talk that it is scheduled for restoration work soon, I for one would like to see that happen. There are great reasons to visit Cantons park system so please do, and have a wonderful time.

The prominent display of the Class of 2015 inductees can be easily seen from the far end of the Pro Football Hall of Fame parking lot as well as along interstate 77.

Lunch On The Patio At Papa Gyros


A beautiful day, around 60 degrees, perfect for lunch on the patio at the Belden Village Papa Gyros.

The Greek salad and Souvlaki I had on Sunday was so good I came back for more. Switched to steak today and it was perfectly cooked.

Lunch at El Patio Mexican Grill in Canton



Lunch at El Patio Mexcian Grill in Canton. I've been to El Patio a few times and haven't been disappointed yet. It is, I'd say, as good as any Mexican food you can get in Stark County.

Fajitas and grilled tortillas with a side order of rice and refried beans. This is a dish I wouldn't hesitate to order again.

I don't order dessert often, but I'm working my way through the El Patio Mexican Grill menu and today I saw something I couldn't pass up.

I've had a lot of different cheesecakes, but today, at El Patio, I had a Cheesecake Burrito for the first time and it was tasty.

Lunch at Papa Gyros In Canton, No Problem With This Special Order


Today is Greek Easter and there was a big turnout for authentic Greek food at Papa Gyros, on Everhard Road, in Belden Village.

Thanks to Steve Paxos and his team at Papa Gyros for accommodating my special order, a Greek Salad with Chicken Souvlaki.


The food, as always, whether its a standard menu item or a special order, was excellent. Another example of why Papa Gyros is not only as good as any Greek restaurant in NE Ohio, but one of the best casual dining restaurants in Stark County.

A Beautiful Day At Sippo Lake Park In Perry Township


We visited Sippo Lake Park, in Perry Township, today. It was a beautiful day for a walk, we made the loop from Exploration Gateway to the Marina and back.

The park was busy today, at both Sippo Lake and Exploration Gateway. People walking, like us, some with dogs, riding bicycles  and fishing.

Beautiful weather as well; the day bathed in sunlight, with puffy white clouds in a bright blue sky, and warm enough for trees to start budding.

Breakfast At Jane's Family Restaurant In Lake Cable

Jane's Family Restaurant, on Fulton Road in Lake Cable, is a hidden jewel I was introduced to recently.

Its nothing fancy, an independent, family-owned diner; one that I'd rank among the best breakfast restaurants in Stark County.

First time I've had German Fries at Jane's and it was excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to come back for this dish.
