No, you aren't in Bluffton, anymore. This is Ada. The year is 1902 and the photograph shows the major building of what was called Ohio Normal University on South Main Street Ada. This photo is from a book of Ada photos titled "Ada and the O.N.U. - The New and the Old," published in 1902. The booklet is from the collection of Bob Barnett.
