New Concord is less than 30 minutes off 77 and worth a stop to see the childhood home of John Glenn. The visit starts with a very informative film of the life of John and Annie Glenn. It helps you appreciate the couples impressive life accomplishments and the small town that gave them their start. The tour of the home is a step back into WWI times. Our tour guide was a "Muskinghum Med student boading at the home with the young John Glenn". He was entertaining as well as informative about the war efforts being done on the home front in small towns like New Concord. He gave us a very good feel of John Glenn's early years in New Concord. Even the 2 teenagers in our group enjoyed the visit. The tour including the movie took us about 1 & 1/2. It is worth the detour off 77 to see the historic route 40 and step back into time at the John and Annie Glenn site.
