The Lonz Winery

The state of Ohio is planning on investing and additional $88 million into Ohio's state parks, which includes the Lonz Winery, which closed in 2000 after a porch collapse killed one person and injured others. The state acquired the property the next year and is planning on renovating it in hopes of spurring further tourism to the island. Photos taken on Thursday, June 5, 2014.
