Here are my pictures from the second day in Toledo, Ohio during my Midwest U.S. trip to Toledo, Chicago, and Detroit.

If you didn't see the first day in Toledo, you can view it here:

This tour focuses on Toledo's historic Old West End, some more of the Warehouse District, and highlights of the Indianapolis Indians and Toledo Mud Hens ball game at Fifth Third Field.

The Rosary Cathedral Church on Collingwood Boulevard in Old West Toledo. Built in 1931. Designed in the Spanish Plasteresque architectural style, meant to be in the spirit of its sister city, Toledo, Spain.

Rosary Cathedral School, also on Collingwood Boulevard.

Historic Jesup W. Scott High School on Collingwood Boulevard, built in 1913.

Collingwood Arts Center on Collingwood Boulevard

First Congregational Church, built in 1916.

Mansions on Collingwood Boulevard in Old West

Worship Hall

Homes and Mansions in the Old West End

The Leeper-Geddes House on Parkwood Avenue, built in 1903

Stranahan-Rothschild House, also on Parkwood Avenue, built in 1907

The Edward D. Libbey House, a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Built in 1895, it was the home of Edward Libbey, the founder of Libbey Glass in Toledo. The home is currently owned by the Libbey House foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to transform the home into a museum and interactive center focused on Toledo's history and the glass industry.

I was fortunate enough to tour inside on a day where only Libbey retirees and employees were allowed to tour, but the staff allowed me inside to check it out. I didn't take pictures inside to respect the preservation and because nobody else did.

Great pics again! Ya got lucky to see your first hens win. We were pretty terrible this year! Glad to see it was a packed house when you went. Just imagine that for a playoff game! Not sure how much you read the Toledo thread but the hens are allegedly buying up the 3 buildings next to frickers as well as the 2 buildings plus parking lot across the street from the stadium Behind the right field video board. So, by the next time you come down, the hens may have their own entertainment district. And possibly 200 more residents in the warehouse district if the berdan building ia finished by then

Also, if you'd want to tour some OWE homes, theres a festival in the summer with tours and tours randomly throughout the year.

What great housing stock Toledo has. I can see these areas becoming very popular places to live over the next couple decades, if they aren't already. Nice job!
