I recently acquired this membership badge from the Washington County, Ohio, Veterans Association. This veterans group was comprised of Union veterans of the Civil War from Washington County, Ohio. 
Situated along the Ohio River in southeast Ohio, Washington County, established in 1788 and named after George Washington, is the oldest county in Ohio. #washingtoncountyohio #ohio #ohiohistory #washingtoncountyohioveteransassociation #abrahamlincoln #presidentabrahamlincoln #georgewashington #ohiocounties #ushistory

An old photo of the church on the square behind our house. Interesting fact: The house next to the church is now across the street from us. The former parsonage was moved in 1969. It’s currently for sale.

I’ve heard tell that, in the spring and summer, this beautiful little cemetery is brightened by beautiful flowering trees and shrubs.  Many of the inhabitants are founders and administrators of Case Western University, with their families.  Hudson, Ohio was also a very important part of the Underground Railroad.  I do love this little final resting place, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be back. ❤️ #cemetery #oldplaces #ohio #jj_ohio #theohiocollective #midwest #ohiohistory

I recently acquired this badge worn by a representative who attended the 58th Annual Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), Department of Ohio. This particular encampment was held in Warren, Ohio, in 1924. 
The gentleman depicted at the bottom is General Simon Perkins. Although born in Connecticut, Perkins, as a young man, moved to Warren, Ohio, at which location he established the headquarters of The Erie Land Company; he was the company's land agent in Ohio and is the one co-responsible for founding the City of Akron. In 1808, Perkins was appointed a brigadier general in the state's militia and was responsible for defending northwest Ohio during the War of 1812. Thus, although he played no role in the Civil War--he died in 1844--the members of this GAR post wished to commemorate Simon Perkins for his role in founding and defending Ohio. #grandarmyoftherepublic #departmentofohiogar #warrenohio #warrenoh #1924 #generalsimonperkins #simonperkins #americancivilwar #warof1812 #ohio #ohiohistory #ushistory

The French Gratitude Train in what is believed to be Chillicothe, Ohio, 1950. The French Gratitude Train was stopped in Chillicothe from October 20-22, 1950, during its final stop on its route. In 1948 the United States sent a large shipment of food, fuel and clothing to Le Havre, France, to be distributed to needy people in the war-torn country. To reciprocate, the French people collected gifts, including hand-made toys and crafts and local specialties, to send to the United States. The gifts filled 49 box cars, one for each state and one to be shared by Hawaii and Washington, D.C. The train, known as the "Gratitude Train" "Train de la Reconnaissance" or "Merci Train" arrived in the United States in 1949. The Ohio train traveled through the state from June 5 through October 22, 1950. #ohiohistory #ushistory #worldhistory #france #wwii #gratitude

Off of State Route 82 in Masury lies a building; many buildings in fact, however one nondescript one has a fiery history. The “Green Parrot Lounge” a sign proclaims our front, however, what happened behind these walls that was so noteworthy? 
The year is 1933, America is in the midst of an economic depression, desperados roam the country holding up banks and trains; one desperado by the name of John Dillinger frequented this area, specifically the Green Parrot Lounge. Located about halfway between Chicago and New York, Masury was the ideal half point. Six hours from New York, six hours from Chicago. Dillinger and his gang would gamble, dine, drink, and board here at the Green Parrot. In fact, he became somewhat of a local celebrity. Outside the lounge, children would congregate and Dillinger would throw pennies at them, he would frequently buy drinks for the crowd their and host parties, people thought he was a local lawman! During a game of poker, his pistol fell from its holster onto the ground, and a nearby cop picked it up for him and handed it back, unaware of who he was! Finally, his days in Masury were over. On September 12th, 1933, him and his buddies drove over to the state line to Farrell, Pennsylvania-after getting a tune-up on his car, the gang robbed Gully Bank in town stealing over 20,000$ in cash. Speeding away, the cars were found in New Middletown, Ohio abandoned and Dillinger arrested soon after. One and a half years later in 1934, he would be shot and killed by police in Chicago.

If only a tree could talk!  This bur oak, the Signal Tree, is over 300 years old and was used by Native Americans to find their way between the Cuyahoga River and Summit Lake in NE Ohio.  Natives would carry their canoes on their backs for the nearly 8 mile journey!
.
 I'm so thankful this tree is still standing to tell us this story- her roots must be strong.  As I was corralling the kids my husband said, "wow, thanks for bringing me here." It's funny that for most of our lives we've lived no more than 2-3 hours away, but we're still finding new places to explore and new history to learn.  The biggest thing I hope our kids get out of our adventures is to be lifelong learners. .

This photo shows the aftermath of one of the most devastating events in Ohio’s history, The East Ohio Gas Company explosion. This explosion occurred on a Friday afternoon at 2:40 pm on October 20th, 1944. In 1941 the East Ohio Gas Company built a plant in Cleveland for performing the process of liquefaction and regasification. When gas escaped from one of the four tanks it ignited into a ball of flame that swept a mile-wide area and claimed around 130 lives. Even for those who survived, this explosion was catastrophic; it destroyed homes and businesses spanning several blocks. The loss of one’s home at this time could mean losing everything, as many people had withdrawn their life savings from the banks as a result of the Great Depression. In reparation the East Ohio Gas Company paid $7,000,000 to those injured in the explosion and to the families of those whose lives were taken. The company also created a scholarship fund for the children of employees who died in the explosion #OhioHistory #Ohio #Cleveland

Take a ride up #Cincinnati's old Fuhnicular railway with us this week as we explore a banquet that changed the future of #Judaism in America! Held at the luxurious Highland House at the top of this steampunk fantasy, the Trefa Banquet in 1883 helped pave the way for the foundations of Reform Judaism in the late 19th century. Featuring Dr. Jonathan Sarna of Brandeis University, we’ll learn how the non-kosher foods served at this lavish meal, like clams, crabs, and frogs legs kicked off a fierce debate about what it means to be #Jewish in #America. We’ll explore how a dispute over regional Jewish #foodways changed the face of the #religion at the end of the 19th century- from a dream of a single united Jewish American faith to the numerous denominations we know today. Available now on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen. @museumjewishheritage @centerforjewishhistory

I recently acquired this original 30th annual reunion ribbon of the 123rd Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry (OVI). The members of the 123rd held this particular reunion in Tiffin, Ohio, on September 5, 1895. 
Mustered in service for three years in September 1862, this regiment participated in such battles as the Battle of New Market, the Siege of Petersburg, and the Battle of Appomattox Court House, among others. 
The 123rd mustered out of service in June 1865; the regiment lost a total of 187 men during its service. #123rdOhioVolunteerInfantry #123rdohiovolunteerinfantry #1895 #tiffinohio #americancivilwar #ushistory #ohiohistory

Here's a vintage advertisement from the 1930s for #Goodyear tires. It features a man in obvious distress, having the thought that he may have seriously injured his riding companion. The message is simple: disaster would have been averted if he had just chosen the right tire, a Goodyear tire. Fear has been used as a psychological ploy by advertisers for a long time, especially in the month of October when the ghosts and goblins of Halloween come out to play.

Here's a vintage advertisement from the 1930s for #Goodyear  tires. It features a man in obvious distress, having the thought that he may have seriously injured his riding companion. The message is simple: disaster would have been averted if he had just chosen the right tire, a Goodyear tire. Fear has been used as a psychological ploy by advertisers for a long time, especially in the month of October when the ghosts and goblins of Halloween come out to play.

We're doing palm reading with @cameronfontana and @gooddaycolumbus on @wsyx6. Come to Ohio Village this Saturday for All Hallows' Eve, our 19th century Halloween celebration! #ohiovillage #ohiohistory #halloween #allhallowseve
In just a few short days Marietta's Armory lawn will be transported back 100 years to October 1917. At this time the Armory was bustling with activity as Red Cross volunteers met inside to make care packages for soldiers. Meanwhile Marietta's Ohio National Guard company hurriedly packed to leave for training. This history will be brought to life by living history interpreters engaging in demonstrations of 100 years ago! Don't miss this opportunity to relive history on Sat., Oct. 21 10am - 2pm at Armory Square! #mymarietta #mymariettahistory #livelovemov #ohiohistory #worldwar1 #usww100

"Drunkenness amongst the workmen had some influence too, as it was often Wednesday after pay-day before full production could be resumed in the plants." Reading this firsthand account of the early 20th–century pottery industry in Ohio — by a former pottery worker and executive — reminded me of this stunning photo I saw in the Sebring Ohio Historical Society's collection. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #pottery #americanhistory #sebringohio #dinnerware #americanpottery #history #ceramics #labor #laborhistory #ohiohistory #nationalclayweek2017

I love this sculpture dedicated to the Ohio women who helped preserve the Union during the Civil War.

There’s a tremendous amount of history in this cemetery. There are many recognizable names on the headstones in this cemetery located in Southwest Franklin county.
