Historical Collections of Ohio - The Centinial Edition, by Henry Howe. This book was
written in 1888 and may contain language to particular ethnic groups that some
may find offensive today. It is essential that history not be "judged" using a modern
day point-of-view. The views of the past must be taken in context of how people
generally thought "back in the day." - quoted from the web site.

collection functions as an archival and historical repository and research center.
