A historical part of Zanesville is getting a face lift, and it all can be attributed to one man. Construction of a new patio area and walking trail has been announced for residents at the Abbot Home. Today, the Abbot Home Board of Trustees announced the dedication of the project to the motivator behind the renovations... Bob Butler. Butler was behind more than 600 thousand dollars of renovations at the Abbot Home during his time on the board. Butler dug the first patch of dirt in the ground breaking ceremonies today.
