The Douglas Scott Memorial

located on Corry Street & the Miami Trail, Yellow Springs, Ohio

Near the entrance to Glen Helen park, on the Miami bike path,  is a one-of-a-kind bench.  From Corry street, it is a brightly colored, life-sized man with a satchel of books, walking with his borzoi and his cat.  Looking from the bike path side, it is a cool resting bench, showing stalks of bamboo, and a pond with flowers, frogs and bees.  Etched into the tiles, are reminders about a man's life - names of his favorite books, his tennis group, his favorite beer.   It is a memorial from his family, to a long time Yellow Springs resident, Douglas Scott (1918-2008).  The ceramic tile bench was created by Yellow Springs artists, Beth Holyoke and Kaethi Seidl.  They sculpted and fired the ceramic tiles, using a freeze proof clay formula.  The frame was welded from quarter-inch steel.  The structure was moved to its final location, the cement was applied, and finally the tiles.
