All About Ohio

Ohio, known as the “Buckeye State”, joined the Union on March 1, 1803 as the 17th state. The word ‘ohio’ is from the Iroquois ohi-yo' for “good river”.

Ohio, in the East North Central Region, is bordered on the northwest by Michigan and Lake Erie to the north, the east by Pennsylvania, the Ohio River on the south with West Virginia to the southeast and Kentucky to the southwest, and Indiana to the west.

FYI ~ Ohio is called “The Mother of Presidents” for the eight United States Presidents either born or lived in Ohio. And did you know 23 astronauts — the most of any state — are from Ohio?

Cincinnati, founded in 1788, was so named after the Society of the Cincinnati which honored General George Washington, who was considered a latter day Cincinnatus, the Roman farmer who was called to serve Rome as dictator and resigned appropriately after he completed his assigned task.

The present day city of Cleveland, on the shores of Lake Erie, was marked as “Cleaveland” by surveyors for the Connecticut Land Company laying out Connecticut's Western Reserve into townships in 1796, after their leader General Moses Cleaveland.

Scarlet Carnations (Dianthus caryophyllus) the State Flower of Ohio, is also associated with the month of January. Carnations are native to the Near East and have been cultivated for the last 2,000 years.

Marietta - Ohio's oldest permanent settlement was staked out as capital of Northwest Territory in 1788 by New Englanders of the Ohio Company of Associates. Governor Arthur St. Clair's opposition helped delay Ohio's statehood until 1803. Ropemaking and shipbuilding flourished in the 19th century; exploitation of petroleum in the early 20th.

Gallipolis - In the late 1780s Scioto Company speculators issued false titles to French buyers of acreage in proposed Gallipolis (City of Gauls), land actually owned by the Ohio Company. Congress offered tracts elsewhere, but many chose to repurchase their lots.

Zanesville - While surveying the road from Wheeling, West Virginia, to northern Kentucky in 1797, Ebenezer Zane founded Zanesville. It was one of several towns he established at river crossing of Zane's Trace, a major land route through Ohio and state capital from 1810-1812.

Mt. Pleasant - Early Quaker meeting place. Published the nation's first abolitionist newspaper in 1817 and later was a stop for slaves on the Underground Railroad.

Chillicothe - The trading center for the Scioto Valley region, Chillicothe became capital of Northwest Territory in 1800 and was twice state capital before 1820. Boomed with the Ohio and Erie Canal in 1832. The paper industry, which emerged around 1810, is still important. (fyi - the word chilicothe is from the Shawnee name Chalahgawtha, meaning “principal town”, as it was a major settlement of the tribe.)

Columbus - In 1816 the state government was moved from Chillicothe to more central Columbus. A feeder to the Ohio and Erie Canal, the National Road, and – after 1850 – railroads spurred farm trade and manufacturing. The land-grant Ohio State University opened in the 1870s.

Cincinnati - Construction of a “substantial fortress” began in 1789. By the 1820s steamboats had made centrally positioned Cincinnati the Ohio Valley's bug, soon boosted by the Miami-Erie Canal. By 1860 Porkopolis, as the meat-packing center was called, had 160,000 people, many of them Irish and German immigrants. A commercial bridge between the industrial North and the rural South.

Dayton - Settled in 1796, despite warning by Indians about flooding. Farm-machinery and railroad-car manufacturing expanded Dayton by the mid 1800s; the mass production of cash registers began in 1880s. In 1910 Orville and Wilbur Wright opened an experimental airplane factory, and aviation remains important.

The Story of the
Great Black Swamp,
VHS, 1982

The Great Black Swamp, a glacially caused wetland in northwest Ohio, United States, extended into extreme northeastern Indiana. The swamps and marshes, interspersed with higher ground, were drained and settled in the second half of the 19th century.

The Story of the Great Black Swamp is a television documentary produced by WBGU-TV, Bowling Green, Ohio.

FYI ~ The Limberlost Swamp, written about by author Gene Stratton-Porter, is at the western end of the Great Black Swamp.

Battle of Fallen Timbers - After the War for Independence George Washington asked Major Anthony Wayne to deal with the Native American tribes in the Northwest who were not party to, or honoring, the Treaty of Paris.

The Battle of Fallen Timbers, near present day Toledo, resulted in the Treaty of Greenville (1795) which opened the area of present day Ohio for settlement.
