The Flood of 1873


Athens, Ohio near present-day Lasher Hall
The familiar buildings of the old mental health hospital are on the hill in the background. Now called The Ridges, the old hospital grounds today host a nature preserve, an art museum, and various university research and service programs. Following the calamitous flood of 1968, the path of the Hocking River was rerouted in Athens by the US Army Corps of Engineers to prevent flooding in the city. So far, the project has worked well.
