ABOUT

THE NAME "1883 LOCALE" IS OUR WAY OF HONORING HISTORY AND THE POWER OF LEGACY.

Built in 1883, the building itself holds entrepreneurial history with Connell Hardware being the oldest business in the state of Ohio for many years.Hollis and Louise, Chrissy Logesky’s grandparents, were among the firsts to introduce pizza shops to Ohio as Vick's Pizza, which is now directly below 1883. They worked hard to establish their business and it has carried on for two generations already. Continuing the legacy, Andrew and Chrissy Logesky are the owners of 1883 and look forward to using their 10 years of wedding industry experience as photographers in a new way. They have designed and made every decision with beautiful memories and photos in mind.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

OUR PLANT MANTRA

RENOVATIONS AND MORE

PLANTS. PLANTS. PLANTS.

We are just in the beginning phases of renovations. We plan to keep this site updated through our blog with all the changes. As soon as we have a month for our opening we feel we can promise and stand behind, we will announce it. We have hopes of seeing this happen sooner than later because of all the amazing support of the community and our friends and family!

This space has been used as Mason's Opera House, for high school graduations, The Chautauqua Show, and so many other celebratory and entertaining purposes over the years. We want to restore it back to life and it's original purposes. The plants that will grow inside will be a reminder to us of the new life that grows here with every laugh and joyous moment shared and celebrated.
