Ottawa River behind Manor House, Wildwood Metropark, Toledo, Ohio

Wildwood is the former estate of Robert Stranahan, co-founder of the Champion Spark Plug Company.

There is a story about this part of the river that says Mrs. Stranaham wanted to be able to hear the sounds of water from her patio, but the river was too far away. She brought in workers to alter the flow of the river so that it would pass below her patio in the manor house.
