I’m usually not a fan of postcards like this where everything around the subject has been erased. For all anybody knows, this inviting little property could have a whorehouse on one side of it and a sewage treatment plant on the other.

Thankfully, that is not the case for the Ohio House. It is still there after having opened in 1960 and looking almost the same minus the red doors. With it apparently getting good reviews online, it would certainly be one of many places in the great city of Chicago to stay for a visit or on the night before starting a trip down Route 66 which begins a little southeast of this location.
