A Lively History

From the Iroquois O-Y-O or “great river”, this state fosters a unique history that helped form the Buckeye State of today. Originally inhabited by French fur traders and property of Britain following the French and Indian War, Ohio became a state March 1st, 1803 when British ceded the state to the newly formed US. Comically, there was no official documentation officially recognizing the state until 1953 when Eisenhower completed the necessary paperwork.
