Like Ducks to Water ~ Gaunt Park Pool (117)

We have a town swimming pool that sits atop a hill by our water towers on nine acres donated by Wheeling Gaunt. A slave for thirty-two years, he bought his own freedom in Kentucky for $900. He went on to build a fortune in real estate in Yellow Springs.

Nowadays the local kids can splash and swim all summer. They take to it like ducks to water.
