Once known as the Pottery Capital of the World, East Liverpool boasted some 300 potteries in its heyday, along with many ancillary industries. When British immigrant Thomas Bennett found promising clay deposits along the riverfront, he opened the city's first one-kiln pottery in 1839. From that humble beginning, the industry burgeoned, eventually spreading up the hills and across the river. Besides sturdy kitchenware, hotel china, toilet ware, and ceramic doorknobs and insulators, the potteries produced such elegant designs as Lotus Ware, Lu-Ray, and Fiesta Ware. The men, women, and children who worked in the potteries also built a town with a busy and complex social life. Churches, schools, cultural and service organizations, theaters, and restaurants filled the downtown area. East Liverpool struggled after the collapse of the pottery industry in the second half of the 20th century but has persevered into the 21st century with hope for the future.

"Founded in 1852 amid dense forests and the mosquito-infested Great Black Swamp, Wauseon became the county seat of one of the last areas in Ohio to be settled. Named in honor of a local Potawatomi chief, Wauseon is the birthplace of Ohio's last surviving Civil War veteran and early race car legend Barney Oldfield. Wauseon was one of the first communities in the United States to implement rural mail delivery and establish a public phone service. Among its manufacturing operations is a company that made flashlights used on the Apollo moon landings. Wauseon is truly a city people take to heart, reflecting strong Midwestern values."--Provided by publisher.

"The Hocking Hills is a term given to the area in southeastern Ohio located predominately in Hocking County. Millions of tourists visit the valley each year to experience the primary feature of the Hocking Hills: the beautiful and historic cave system that stands today as it has for eons. From 1900 to 1950, the caves were a popular subject for postcard images, and town and country residents who lived and worked in this area were captured on vintage postcards. Residents created their own entertainment, and Main Street parades, the county fair, holidays, patriotic events, and family gatherings were celebrated and recorded with penny postcards."--Back cover.
