"Buckeye Lake is a reservoir in Fairfield, Licking, and Perry Counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. The lake was created in the 19th century as the "Licking Summit Reservoir", an important part of the Ohio and Erie Canal project. With the demise of the canal system in the early 20th century, usage of the lake shifted to recreation."
Prior to the meeting the Trustees enjoyed lunch at the Buckeye Lake Pizza Cottage, just down the street, from the Museum.
