Mystery Hill and Pre-Historic Forest

Not much left of it today except the small building to the left and the parking lot out front..

Closed in 2010 according to https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/ohio/... who has more history:

> For 57 years, this family fun attraction baffled visitors with the legend of Mystery Hill and delighted children with life-sized, custom built dinosaurs. The 10-acre park and mystery house was built in 1953. The park featured a “Dinosaur Dig” in which children uncovered fossils (some authentic and some not so authentic), miniature golf and a mile and a half of trails though the “Prehistoric Forest,” where visitors found more than 40 fiberglass models of the extinct friends and other sorts of creatures—some of them stretching more than 20 feet high into the air.

We bought the last dinosaur they had! A small T-Rex we named Tim.
