Harriet Beecher Stowe

I had no idea!  I've run past a landmark two years in a row and not even noticed!

This year was different, however.  The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon/Half Marathon decided to eat my lunch this year and I found myself walking along bits and pieces of the route where I'd normally be running. 

As I came up onto a left-hand turn around mile 9 or 10, I noticed a fellow aiming a camera, not at us runners, but at a house up on a hill above us.  Next to him was an historical marker and - since I was walking at the time - I had enough time to read the sign and to look up at what he was photographing. 

It was the Harriet Beecher Stowe House. (link)  Well of course I had to Google it!
