You can't miss it as it's right next to the Ohio Supreme Court. It is what it is, a giant gavel. If you're down here then take a tour of the Ohio Supreme Court is that is well worth it.

The giant gavel is neat to see if you're in the area. It's just a quick detour, around 10 minutes to see it, take pictures, etc.

It's a large gavel. Looks exactly like the picture. Might be nice to stop by if you are a visitor in the area but definitely not worth its own trip.

This was located at the Ohio Supreme Court building . If you get a chance to tour the building it is amazing . A lot of art deco and superbly restored features from when the building was built in the early 1930'sMore

Traveling through town and came across this really neat attraction. It was worth devisting out of our way to marvel at this and the wonderful old Lazarus builldings nearby.

After we parked to be able to walk down by the waterfront we ran across the BIG Gavel. It was cool to see.
