  • More About This Book
When pioneer families from the East moved into Ohio around the turn of the nineteenth century, one of the first lands of promise they discovered was the area that would become Carroll County. The region grew into a major farming center that witnessed the march of time from Native American attacks to the building of the Sandy-Beaver Canal. Home to the "Fighting McCooks," who sent five generals to the Civil War, the county is also believed to be the site of a Johnny Appleseed orchard.
