There are certain images that instantly unite us all, inciting nostalgia, comradery and a shared love for Ohio. Such is the case with the following images that (mostly) only people from Ohio will immediately recognize. See how many you instantly recognize:
1. The Shoe
(AKA, the home of the best college football team EVER.)
2. The most delicious, homemade candy:
3. Ohio Bicentennial Barns
All throughout the state, these beautiful barns give our state a unique stamp on America the Beautiful.
4. The happiest sign on earth:
(AKA, "Welcome to the Roller Coaster Capital of the World.")
5. The logo that takes you back and makes you smell the free popcorn again:
Most stores of this department store chain (founded in 1957 in Youngstown) were only located in Ohio up until the late 90s when the chain was acquired by Ames.
6. Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame
Cleveland is the proud home of the birthplace of rock and roll, and the museum's unique building is instantly recognizable to us.
7. The Three-Way
(Even if you don't like it, you know what this iconic food is.)
8. These bronze faces:
Even if you've never been there, you recognize a photo of the bust room at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.
9. The world's largest amusement park that is (sadly) no more:
Geauga Lake Amusement Park has stood abandoned since 2007, after a long history of beloved family vacations (since 1887) and multiple expansions and redesigns.
10. This really, really big basket:
The Longaberger Company Headquarters features the world's largest basket. This easily recognizable, seven-story corporate headquarters can be found along State Route 16 in Newark.
11. This happy sign:
...which indicates that a delicious burger is just minutes away from you.
12. This beautiful city:
We <3 our state capitol.
