120 Mile Sale scheduled in June 2012.05.02

Written by David Green.

It’s time to start looking through the garage and the closets to get ready for the eighth annual Historical Old Territorial Road 120 Mile Sale.

Dave Blesing of rural Lyons is organizing the event that features 120 miles of yard sales stretching from Sylvania, Ohio, to Elkhart, Ind.

The event is scheduled from June 21 to 24 and participants can choose to participate one or all of the four days.

All residents, organizations, churches and businesses are invited to participate. People don’t have to live directly along the road in order to take part. A sign can be placed at the nearest intersection or arrangements can be made to set up a sale on someone else’s property along Route 120. The idea is to create an extensive string of sales, mile after mile.

There is no cost or registration process.

The old Territorial Road starts on the east as Erie Street and soon becomes Sylvania-Metamora Road. The route passes through Metamora, Seward, Lyons and Morenci and continues into Indiana and the communities of Fremont, Orland, Brighton, Howe and Bristol.
