2014 Fall Fest Oct 4th
Support the Ohio economy by buying hand-made and home-grown products from Morgan County. Hickory Ridge is an artisan cooperative near McConnelsville, Ohio. Just watch for the big Hickory Ridge (HR) signs. For directions and maps go to our Maps page.
From antiques to apples, from wood crafts to goat milk soap, HR has something for everyone. American Elm Workshop is making Shaker and Mission Furniture to order hand-crafted entirely from locally harvested wood. Shew's Orchard is gearing up for another great fruit season. You can get information on their secluded rental cabin on our Cabin page.
Take a scenic drive on Rt 78 to see Connie's newly renovated C-Square shop in the heart of HR. The store has had a total face-lift and is stocked with a treasure of unique finds. It is no longer a craft only store. C-Square cabins, slate switch and outlet covers will always be in the shop.
New merchandise is coming from auctions, estate sales and other sources (including Connie's home). Most items are one of a kind so merchandise will constantly change. Check out Carl's latest log creations--whimsical fairy gardens. The collection includes: churches, barns, cabins, outhouses and a general store.
Can't get to the Ridge? Stop at Jackie's Home Decor in Malta. Jackie has a constantly rotating selection that includes antiques and collectables and bulk buys from large retailers. Explore three floors of unique and useful items, her store is always an excellent shopping destination. Jackie's is open daily the new location is on 3rd and Main Street in Malta, across the street from her former store.

"The Morgan County Scenic Byway starts (or stops) at a gem of the state park system—Burr Oak State Park near Bishopville. The park offers campsites, 38 equipped cabins, fishing, hiking and more.
Byway travelers turn north out of the park on state Route 78, headed toward Ringgold. This is where the going goes from good to great—especially saddled in a sports car. It’s called the Rim of the World for this: views of hills, apple orchards and farms for miles.
Between Ringgold and Malta, travelers should leave the byway on county Road 4 to explore the Hickory Ridge area, where they will find artists and orchards selling everything from birdhouses and handmade brooms to fresh fruit and fine woodworking.
Back on Route 78, it’s a short run to twin towns Malta and McConnelsville, separated at birth by the Muskingum River. In Malta, visitors can tour an American original—the 1877-built, one-room Rock Hollow School, complete with original furnishings.
The Twin City Opera House on McConnelsville’s Main Street is a must-visit. Music lovers can catch a live performance in this historical 1890s building. An underground tunnel once connected it to a hotel across the street where the performers stayed."
