Hardin County, carved from the northern portion of Logan County, is nestled in the quiet, agricultural region of northwest Ohio. The county has featured several nationally known manufacturers, including Champion Iron Company, Imperial Cup, Kenton Hardware Company, International Car, Scioto Signs, Dickleman Manufacturing, and McCurdy Manufacturing. Kenton hosted Harry Blackstone and the first International Brotherhood of Magicians conference, Presidents James Garfield and William McKinley, as well as Gene Autry. From the Scioto Marsh, once the "Onion Capital of the World," to the Wilson Football Factory's NFL and NCAA footballs, the county has impacted countless American lives since its founding in 1833.
