Local History Books on Ohio
Local History Books on Ohio

Ohio is more than just the 17th state to enter the union. To those that live there, work there, or grew up there, it’s a unique place in its own right. It’s the home of Cincinnati, the city where the first ambulance service was established in 1865, as well as Akron, the first city to use police cars. It’s the place where “Hang on Sloopy” is the official state rock song, the location of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and where Neil Armstrong himself was born.

That said, you only think you know Ohio, unless you’re in the habit of reading local interest literature.
