Also, it was the location of the first factory in Holmes County...

  • BOB EVANS " DOWN ON THE FARM "

    After checking in to our Motel, we walked over to the BOB EVANS for something to eat. I like this restaurant as they serve home-cooked, cooked to order family style meals. Hans and I both had the roast beef dinner, only I had corn and Hans had green beans. We also both had the garden salad, which was huge. The meal was very good and it was plenty...

Berlin Warnings and Dangers

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Berlin is lumped with Millersburg under Wooster's crime statistics.
    The area statistics indicate that the area has about half as much crime as similar populations in the state.
    There are 54 registered sex offenders in the general area. That is only one-half of one percent of the population.
    To see if any of these SOs are in the area that you are going to visit, click on the website below.

    For the most part, Berlin is a safe place to visit.
    Use the same safety procedures that you use at home and you should have a fine visit here.
    We have been in the area several times both at touristy spots during the day and downtown at night and have not had any problems.

    Although Lehman's is not in Holmes County, it is in the neighboring county of Wayne in the town called Kidron. This is a famous place, and after visiting it, I can see why.

    This is a resort style golf course with private memberships and upscale homes along some fairways. Public use is available during the summer but you have to call ahead for tee times.
    $30 is the cost of 18 holes and a cart.

    There are 3 sets of 18 holes you can play (one set overlaps the other two). The shortest course is 4900 yards and the longest is 6900 yards so you have a wide variety of games to play. The short tees are made for duffers like me and can be enjoyed by any non-skilled golfer. The better golfers prefer the more rigorous and frustrating long tees and a much longer time on the fairways.

    Most of the holes feature a water hazard or water on the periphery.

    There is a large driving range and a snack bar for refreshment afterwards.
    Be sure to bring water bottle because it can be ver hot here in the summer.
