SEP 23 … WARTHER MUSUEM … Clearing USA Customs, we travel into the rolling hills of Ohio.  In Dover, we visit the Warther Museum, where Master Carver Ernest Warther presents a display of hand-carved wonders.  Using only his knife, file, and native ingenuity, he has carved the history of steam locomotives, ivory collections of Great Events in American History, and being a great admirer of Abraham Lincoln, at the age of 80 carved an 8 foot ebony and ivory replica of the Lincoln Funeral Train.  You will have a chance to stroll through the Swiss-style flower gardens and visit Mrs. Warther’s Button House, a collection of 73,000 buttons arranged in beautiful designs.
