Atherton Park

This is Atherton Park in Marietta by the Visitors Center, which was the Train Depot.  It is named after Howard "Red" Atherton, who was Mayor of Marietta.  I haven't ever talked to Red, but I have talked to his father several times when he told me to either buy something or get  - He didn't want his drug store to be a hangout, but it was anyway. 

This picture was taken in the fall years ago, on one of my morning walks.  This picture doesn't show it, but in the evening it is alive with a bohemian touch.  Students at tables studying, playing guitars, having deep discussions, having not so deep discussions, and of course there is usually b motor cycle or two.
