A short drive east of Cincinnati in Adams County sits 20,000 acres of vast forest, ravines, prairies and stunning views of the Appalachian foothills. The Edge of Appalachia Preserve System is Ohio's largest privately-owned natural area, and the subject of a new exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
