To walk on the land where my grandmother grew up

For a long time I have wanted to go back to southern Ohio and walk on the land where my grandmother lived. To see the trees that were old even when she was young. Are the wild flowers related to the ones she might have picked in 1900? What will it feel like to walk up and down the gentle hills on the old family farm that is no longer producing crops? There are some ancient out-buildings barely standing, yet hiding some old jars in the cobwebby corners. Did she play hide-and-seek with her sisters? or run after her borther's old hound dog?
