Underneath the brick and gravel of Second Street and beneath the soil of the surrounding farmland lies over a century and a half of Chillicothe, Hallock, and Medina township history. Although the founding families have passed on, their names and accomplishments still remain. These historic yearsand the story of Chillicothe, Hallock, and Medina'sdevelopment are documented through over 200 vintage photographs in this new book in the Images of America series. The story of these three townships is not just a tale of one community, but is rather a chapter in the larger chronicle of 19th-century Midwestern settlement. This microcosm of heartland America documents the process by which frontier lands were settled, townships established, communities organized, and families raised.
