On March 1, 1803 Ohio was admitted to the Union as the 17th state.

"No colony in America was ever settled under such favorable auspices as that which has just commenced at the Muskingum. If I was a young man, just preparing to begin the world, or if advanced in life and had a family to make provision for, I know of no country where I should rather fix my habitation." George Washington (Ohio Defined: Ohio Statehood)

Welcome to the Ohio American Local History Network (ALHN) pages.  My name is Leona Gustafson and I am the host for the Buckeye State.  All ALHN sites are hosted by independent webmasters who share a love of history and/or genealogy and have a desire to share with you.
