Visit to Rossford garden inspires sculpture for Toledo art museum

A sculpture that now sits on the lawn of the Toledo Museum of Art all started with a visit nearly 100 years ago to a Rossford garden.

In the 1910s, famous naturalist and essayist John Burroughs visited the Toledo area to design a garden for admirer and patron William E. Bock of Rossford.

Mr. Bock, who lived at 500 Riverside Drive, worked at the Toledo Glass Co. and was Michael J. Owens’ first assistant in early work on the automated bottle machine. His name is listed on many patents for the machine.
