Athens to Marietta


Sound Tracks is an audio tour unlike any you have experienced. It's a tour of what you see along the road today and of  Route 550 as it once was. You travel along one of the earliest routes in Ohio - Route 550 from Athens to Marietta, and as you drive you can LISTEN to its history.

Local residents give you a first hand account of the area's history as Cultural Geographer Hubert Wilhelm discusses the architecture along the route.
