Other things to do at Robbins Crossing
One of the cabins at the Crossing features dolls and other crafts for sale by local artisans. The general store offers lots of interesting items, including penny candy and other homemade goodies. Books about the region, CDs and tapes by local artists, some antiques, and crafts are also available for you to browse and purchase if you want.

More ways than one to get there
You can reach Robbins Crossing easily by car, but for an even more back-to-the past experience, why not take the train? The Hocking Valley Scenic Railroad offers short trips on a steam train between their station in Nelsonville and the Crossing. Once again, you'll enjoy conductors and ticket takers in period garb, not to mention a wonderful steam whistle. As a bonus, those who operate the train are knowledgeable railroad enthusiasts, who can add their own share of history to your visit.
