Conneaut, Ohio. May 3rd, 2010. Part One.

Conneaut (pronounced /ˈkɒni.ɔːt/) is a city in Ashtabula County, Ohio, United States, along Lake Erie at the mouth of Conneaut Creek, which is the number one steelhead trout stream in the country. The population was 12,734 at the 2000 census.

The city of Conneaut is located on an old Native American trail, later used by early westbound pioneers. The word conneaut comes from the Seneca language, and has a disputed meaning.

A Mississauga village was located at or near Conneaut, c. 1747.

Conneaut is located in the northeasternmost corner of Ohio, bordering the state of Pennsylvania to the east and has 27 square miles (70 km2) within its corporate city limits. The city has been operated under a council-manager government since 1992. The current city manager is Bob Schaumleffel, Jr. It is a mixture of urban areas and rural farmland. The city has over seven miles (11 km) of shoreline along Lake Erie, with beaches, boating facilities and a healthy summer tourist trade. Transportation services Conneaut via Interstate 90, which bisects the city, along with an international shipping port and three railroads. Major industries within the city include CSP of Ohio (formerly Venture Industries), General Aluminum (automotive parts), and CW Ohio (windows and pillars). The city's historic business district and its harbor business district are not as thriving as in the past.

Conneaut was originally named "Salem", and the parts surrounding it were named "Lakeville" from 1944–1964, though these were eventually combined into what is now known as "Conneaut". People still refer to parts of Conneaut as Lakeville or Amboy.

Conneaut is located at 41°56′36″N 80°34′10″W / 41.94333°N 80.56944°W / 41.94333; -80.56944 (41.943313, -80.569476)[5].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 26.4 square miles (68.5 kmē), of which, 26.4 square miles (68.3 kmē) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.2 kmē) of it (0.23%) is water. Conneaut is situated along Lake Erie at the mouth of Conneaut Creek.

Laura Boulton, ethnomusicologist (1899–1980)

Osee M. Hall, was a U.S. House Representative from Minnesota.

Joseph Russell Jones, appointed by Ulysses S. Grant to Minister Resident to Belgium.

Larry Kelley, American football player for Yale University, second winner of the Heisman Trophy

Thomas R. Lyon, lumberman at Ludington, Michigan, and later Chicago, Illinois (1854–1909)

John R. Pillion, Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from New York.

George Morton Randall, United States Army general.

Ashland, Ohio. May 24th, 2010. Part One

Ashland is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the county seat of Ashland County. The population was 21,249 at the 2000 census. It is the center of the Ashland Micropolitan Statistical Area (as defined by the United States Census Bureau in 2003). It was incorporated in 1916.

Ashland is well-known in the state for its "welcome sign" that proclaims the city to be "The World Headquarters of Nice People."

Ashland was designated a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

It was formerly known as Uniontown, but because of another city named Uniontown in Ohio, the city was compelled to adopt a new name. Ashland was recommended as a name by congressman Henry Clay, after the name of his ranch in Kentucky. Later, "Henry Clay High School" was considered as a name for what is now known as Ashland High School.

In the mid-1800s, Ashland pioneers traveled to Oregon, naming a settlement after the town.

Education

Ashland Public LibraryAshland Public Schools enroll 3,775 students in public primary and secondary schools. The district operates eight public schools, including five elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, and one alternative school. Other than public schools, the city is home to Ashland Christian School, St. Edward's Catholic School, and Ashland Montessori School.

The city is also home to Ashland University, which is historically related to the Brethren Church. AU is a private secondary educational institution started under the Brethren Church, also serving as the headquarters for the Brethren Church.

Amish Country

Ashland is on the fringe of Ohio's Amish Country. A fairly high concentration of Old Order Amish live in Ashland County; they can be seen shopping in the local stores. They have set up several Amish stores in the city.

Washington Courthouse, Ohio. June 28th, 2010. Part One

Washington Court House is a city in Fayette County, Ohio, United States. It is the county seat of Fayette County and is located approximately halfway between Cincinnati, Ohio, and Columbus, Ohio. The population was 13,524 at the 2000 census. Until 2002, the official name of the city was City of Washington, but there also existed a municipality in Guernsey County, Ohio with the name Washington (now known as Old Washington). The area was originally settled by Virginia war veterans who received the land from the government as payment for their service in the American Revolution. In 2002, a new charter was adopted, officially changing the name to the "City of Washington Court House." The name is often abbreviated as "Washington C.H."

Washington C.H. has an unusual street grid layout. Typically, street grids are arranged east-west and north-south, especially in the Midwest. In this case, the streets in the downtown area, centering on the courthouse building, are arranged northeast-southwest and northwest-southeast. This was done so that all four sides of the courthouse building would receive some sunlight every day of the year. In the traditional grid system, the north side of a building never receives direct sunlight during the fall and winter months.

Court House

The doors are located on the Court Street side of The Fayette County Court HouseThe Fayette County Court House is a host of an unusual event in it's history (reminiscent of the 1960 Harper Lee novel "To Kill a Mockingbird") that is described on a plaque outside the court house. A white mob stormed the court house to carry out vigilante justice upon a black man accused of raping a white woman. Shots were fired from inside the court house to stop the mob, leaving holes in the front doors that are visble to this day.

I also liked the tour of Conneaut. I'll be in Ashtabula County a week from today, and will try to cover some of that area myself.

Yeah, I liked Conneaut as well. However, I was not impressed with Ashtabula when I was at Kent State Ashtabula for a Model UN. I've heard people from there refer to it as "trashtabula". I think there is even a website by that name! LOL

Findlay, Ohio. October 4th 2010

Findlay is a city in and the county seat of Hancock County, Ohio, United States.[4] The city metro area is often referred as The Greater Findlay Area. Located in northwestern Ohio, the city lies approximately 50 miles (80 km) south of Toledo. The population was 38,967 at the 2000 census, Greater Findlay Area was at 45,284. It is home to the University of Findlay. The city's official nickname is "Flag City, USA". Findlay is one of only two cities in Hancock County, along with Fostoria. Findlay is one of the few areas in Northwest Ohio that is still growing and is the second largest city in that region.

The Findlay and Hancock County community was named a winner in the first-ever national competition to identify the 100 Best Communities for Young People in September 2005. The honor was awarded through the America's Promise Alliance. Findlay and Columbus were the only two cities in Ohio to receive the distinction. In 2007, Findlay-Hancock County was once again selected (one of 52 repeat honorees), and joined Toledo as the only two cities in Ohio to receive this designation. Findlay is home to Blanchard Valley Regional Hospitals, which has been rewarded one of the best 100 hospitals in the United States.

The city derives its name from a fort erected on its site in 1812 as a local outpost in the War of 1812, which was commenced by Col. James Findlay and named in honor of that officer. The history of Findlay as a village began on the 3rd of July, 1821, when Joseph Vance of Urbana, William Neill of Columbus and Elnathan Cory of New Carlisle entered the area and laid out the site. It was incorporated as a city in 1887.

During the 1880s, Findlay was a booming centre of oil and natural Gas production though the supply of petroleum had dwindled by the early 20th century. The completion of I-75 in the sixties added to the growth of Findlay.

On March 31, 1892, the only known lynching in the history of Hancock County occurred when a mob of 1,000 men, many "respectable citizens", broke into the county jail in Findlay. They lynched Mr. Lytle, who had fatally injured his wife and two daughters with a hatchet the day before, by hanging him twice (first from the bridge, then a telegraph pole) and finally shooting his body over a dozen times. The authorities had intended to secretly convey the prisoner to a suburb at 1 o'clock, where a train was to have been taken for Lima, but their plans were frustrated by the mob.

In 1908, American songwriter Tell Taylor wrote the standard, "Down by the Old Mill Stream" while fishing along the Blanchard River in Findlay. The song was published in 1910.

For three months in the early 1960s, Findlay had the distinction of being the only community in the world where touch tone telephone service was available. Touch tone service was first introduced in Findlay on November 1, 1960.

In 2000, the Findlay area was rated as the "fastest growing small city", and was even stated in a question on Jeopardy!
