Goll Woods State Nature Preserve
Goll Woods State Nature Preserve is a 321-acre Nature Preserve in western Fulton County, Ohio near Archbold, Ohio. It is named after Peter and Catherine Goll, who moved to America from Grand Charmont, France in 1836; the Goll family descendants loved the big trees and guarded the woods against of timber operators for several generations. The State of Ohio began the nature preserve in 1969; the nature preserve features gigantic 200-400 year old-growth forest that measure 4 feet in diameter, reminiscent of the Great Black Swamp. There is a small area that preserves the rare ecosystem of Oak Openings, which consists large specimens of white and bur oaks, but without any of the small under story trees; the Indians of the area created an open savanna to facilitate their hunting by keeping the brush and small trees down, by burning in the fall. The first settlers could drive their wagons in any direction through the sparsely spaced trees; the preserve is composed of Elm-Ash-Maple swamp forest and mesophytic forest with many oak trees in the lower elevations.
Because of drainage efforts for agriculture, the woods is transitioning to Beech-Maple forest. In 2006, one of the largest burr oak trees, over 450 years old, died of old age, it stood 112 feet tall. Early in the year, over 40 species of ephemeral spring wildflowers including large flowered trillium, Ohio's state wildflower, columbine, marsh marigold, spotted coral-root and three-birds-orchid are in bloom. Besides being a nature preserve, Goll Woods holds historical significance. On the nature preserve is a historic farm complex known as Goll Homestead designated for destruction, but now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, with its distinctive European design, constructed of large timbers. Goll cemetery lies on the preserve grounds; the 3/4 acre burial ground was set aside early by Peter and Catherine Goll, where they laid to rest a young child. Many from the Goll family are now buried there, as well as those from Louys, Beucler, Seigneur and Klopfenstein families; the cemetery is rumored to be haunted.
Nearby, just 1.3 miles southwest of the nature preserve, on County Road I-25, is the Lockport Covered Bridge in Lock Port, spanning the Tiffin River that runs near the nature preserve. It is feature on the Northwest Ohio River Trail and was a winner in the 2002 National Timber Bridge Awards competition, is associated by travelers with the nature preserve.

Ottokee is an unincorporated community in Dover Township, Fulton County, United States. Ottokee was founded in 1850 with the driving of stakes to mark the geographic center of Fulton County and given the name "Centre." The village was renamed shortly thereafter at the suggestion of Col. Dresden Howard to honor the Odawa Chief Ot-to-kee. Chief Ot-to-ke was the last Native American Chief to plead his peoples' case to remain on their native lands in Fulton County, but to no avail. Ottokee was the half brother of Chief Wauseon, who the city of Wauseon in Fulton County is named after. In early years consisted of a courthouse, a two-room schoolhouse, two taverns, a dry goods store, a grocery store; the village became the first seat of justice for the county. The first courthouse, of wood frame construction, was built in 1851. In 1853, the first jail was built, of wood spikes driven in the planks. Nobody escaped on account of the wooden construction. In 1865, a new brick courthouse was built. However, the first railroads were being built through the county.
The first, the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway, laid in 1853, bypassed Ottokee to the south, anointed Wauseon as a commercial center. By 1869, the county residents had voted to move the county seat to Wauseon and the move was completed in 1872, when the first court session was held in the new Fulton County Courthouse. A new historical museum/welcome center for the county, one that will replicate the architecture of the first wooden courthouse in Ottokee, is now being built across from the county fairgrounds. In 1895, the Lima Northern Railway Company was organized in Ohio; the LN built north from Lima through Napoleon and Wauseon, with a stop in Ottokee near the present county fairgrounds onto Oak Shade and Adrian, Michigan. In 1897, the railway changed to Detroit and Lima Northern Railway Company, which subsequently became the Detroit and Ironton Railroad in 1905. After World War I, Henry Ford bought the DT&I railroad, in 1925, built a new, faster track east of Ottokee, that passed through Delta, relegating the DT&I railway serving Ottokee to a mere spur, abandoned in the late 1950's.
The old railway right-of-way paralleled Ohio State Route 108, just west of the highway. The Fulton County Fair was established in 1858. Today, it hosts the Fulton County 9/11 Memorial, erected in 2013. Ottokee was the site of another agricultural establishment, the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, more known as the Grange. Grange No. 273, was one of several Granges in Fulton County. Ottokee's Grange was started in 1874, it is listed as one of "State and Local Agricultural Associations of the United States" in an 1898 directory published by the United States Interstate Commerce Commission. E. P. Ames of Ottokee and Harmon Gasche of Tedrow were listed in as President and Secretary respectively. In 1928, the US Congress recorded that Ottokee Grange No. 273 had resolved to clean up European corn borer. Fulton County's first tax supported home for the dependent came in 1874 after the moving of the county seat from Ottokee to Wauseon. In March of that year the government buildings at Ottokee were turned over by the Country Commissioners to three new infirmary directors, who were James Riddle, Robert Lewis, O.
A. Cobb; the work of making necessary changes the court house, began at once. A contract of 296 acres in the vicinity was purchased, a commodious barn built, a county farm established; the new infirmary was ready for occupancy on May 1, 1874. It was thought that in time the cultivation of land would make the institution nearly self-sustaining. Twenty years the main building of the County Home was erected at a cost of $20,000-$40,000, it was a three-story structure with 13 foot high ceilings and broad stairways, regarded as modern at the time. It was opened for occupancy on New Years Day, 1894. An insane ward was provided for patients considered "harmless and incurable." An additional building was erected adjacent to and east of the main structure, served in turn as a jail, a storage building, a residence for farm workers, a hospital serving residents of the Home. A small cemetery plot lies south east with unmarked graves for past residents. Superintendents of the Fulton County Home included O. B. Verity, John Wittaker, S.
S. Atkinson, Charles Harmen, H. B. Smith, W. S. Egnew, B. J. Jones, Harold and Leah Guilford; the last of the superintendents were Mrs. Burrell Turpening; the Fulton County Home served dependents for 101 years, until its residents were moved to Detwiler Manor in nearby Wauseon, Ohio in 1975. The structure was demolished circa 1993; the Fulton County Airport, KUSE was established on the north border of Ottokee in 1967. It is now the site of a cluster of government functions, including the Dog Warden and the Fulton County Highway Department. On the grounds of the Fulton County Home was erected an obelisk as a notable and unusual monument to women in wartime, it is inscribed on three of its four faces, reading in succession To the memory of the loyal women of fulton county in all wars Erected by Allen Shadle and Ann Shadle in token memory of Joseph A. Shadle their son The first four lines of the poem "The Bravest Battle that Ever was Fought" by Joaquin Miller The date on which the obelisk was put in place is uncertain.
Ottokee is unincorporated and is governed by the trustees of Dover Township Ottokee Cemetery Colonel Dresden Winfield Huston Howard
Fulton County Courthouse (Ohio)
The Fulton County Courthouse, built in 1870, is a historic courthouse building located in Wauseon, Ohio. On May 7, 1973, it was added to the National Register. Fulton County was established in 1850 from parts of Lucas counties; the Ohio General Assembly appointed three commissioners to select the county seat of the newly formed county. They chose a location at the geographical center of the county, named it "Centre."The village was renamed Ottokee shortly thereafter at the suggestion of Col. Dresden Howard to honor the Odawa Chief Ot-to-kee; the courts were held in the home of Robert Howard. In 1851 the completed two-story wood-frame structure rising to a dome; this courthouse burned in a fire in 1864 forcing the county to hastily plan a new second courthouse. This second courthouse was constructed out of brick; the facade was punctuated by pilasters separating the arched windows. This courthouse served the county. Years after the move the old courthouse was still in use as the county infirmary. Ottokee remained the county seat and defeated many attempts to move the courts, until 1869, when a railroad company surveyed the area and chose Wauseon as a stopping point.
The county seat relocated there shortly thereafter. The same act that established the new county seat was passed, it included $5,000 to complete a new courthouse; this new courthouse, the third for the county, the first for Wauseon, was completed in 1872 and is in use today. The architect, C. C. Miller, designed the courthouse in the Italianate style and Alexander Voss and H. B. Bensman were responsible for construction; the total cost of the courthouse was $45,722.27. The primary bulk of the courthouse is a long rectangular block with a central projection; the red brick structure rests on a rusticated sandstone foundation, pierced by small square windows. The first floor is illuminated by square windows with a slight arch and each is topped with a decorative header. Between the windows are pilasters rising from the foundation to the roofline; the hipped roof rests on an entablature decorated with dentil moldings. The roof rises to a flat roof; the central projection contains the entrance. Arched windows light the second floor and a balcony is located in the front.
The entablature carries over onto the projection with the tower rising for another two levels before terminating in platform lined with a balustrade. Below this platform is arched vents where the courthouse bell is kept; the building's main entry is set in the middle of the front tower. After walking through the vestibule, one can turn to the left and climb a staircase to the second-story courtroom. Extensive artwork is present in the courtroom, including murals of interactions between Indians and Americans during the county's earliest years, multiple oil paintings, wood carvings, plus a dome with stained glass.

Robert Fulton was an American engineer and inventor, credited with developing a commercially successful steamboat. In 1807 that steamboat traveled on the Hudson River with passengers, from New York City to Albany and back again, a round trip of 300 miles, in 62 hours; the success of his steamboat changed river trade on major American rivers. In 1800, Fulton had been commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte, leader of France, to attempt to design a submarine. Fulton is credited with inventing some of the world's earliest naval torpedoes for use by the British Royal Navy. Fulton became interested in steam engines and the idea of steamboats in 1777 when he was around age 12 and visited state delegate William Henry of Lancaster, interested in this topic. Henry had learned about inventor James Watt and his Watt steam engine on an earlier visit to England. Robert Fulton was born on a farm in Little Britain, Pennsylvania, on November 14, 1765, he had three sisters – Isabella and Mary, a younger brother, Abraham.
For six years, he lived in Philadelphia, where he painted portraits and landscapes, drew houses and machinery, was able to send money home to help support his mother. In 1785, Fulton bought a farm at Hopewell Township in Washington County near Pittsburgh for £80, moved his mother and family into it. At the age of 23, Fulton traveled to Europe, he went to England in 1786, carrying several letters of introduction to Americans abroad from prominent individuals he had met in Philadelphia. He had corresponded with artist Benjamin West. West took Fulton into his home, where Fulton studied painting. Fulton gained many commissions painting portraits and landscapes, which allowed him to support himself, he continued to experiment with mechanical inventions. Fulton became caught up in the enthusiasm of the "Canal Mania". In 1793 he began developing his ideas for tugboat canals with inclined planes instead of locks, he obtained a patent for this idea in 1794 and began working on ideas for the steam power of boats.
He patented a dredging machine and several other inventions. In 1794, he moved to Manchester to gain practical knowledge of English canal engineering. While there he became friendly with Robert Owen, a cotton manufacturer and early socialist. Owen agreed to finance the development and promotion of Fulton's designs for inclined planes and earth-digging machines, but Fulton was not successful at this practical effort and he gave up the contract after a short time. As early as 1793, Fulton proposed plans for steam-powered vessels to both the United States and British governments; the first steamships had appeared earlier. The earliest steam-powered ship, in which the engine moved oars, was built by Claude de Jouffroy in France. Called the Palmipède, it was tested on the Doubs in 1776. In 1783, de Jouffroy built the Phyroscaphe, the first paddle steamer, which sailed on the Saône; the first successful trial run of a steamboat in America had been made by inventor John Fitch, on the Delaware River on August 22, 1787.
William Symington had tried steamboats in 1788, it seems probable that Fulton was aware of these developments. In England, Fulton met the Duke of Bridgewater, Francis Egerton, whose canal, the first to be constructed in Britain, was being used for trials of a steam tug. Fulton became enthusiastic about the canals, wrote a 1796 treatise on canal construction, suggesting improvements to locks and other features. Working for the Duke of Bridgewater between 1796 and 1799, Fulton had a boat constructed in the Duke's timber yard, under the supervision of Benjamin Powell. After installation of the machinery supplied by the engineers Bateman and Sherratt of Salford, the boat was duly christened Bonaparte in honour of Fulton having served under Napoleon. After expensive trials, because of the configuration of the design, the team feared the paddles might damage the clay lining of the canal and abandoned the experiment. In 1801, Bridgewater instead ordered eight vessels for his canal based on Charlotte Dundas, constructed by Symington.
In 1797 Fulton went to Paris. He studied German, along with mathematics and chemistry. In Paris, Fulton met James Rumsey, an inventor from Virginia with an interest in steamboats, who in 1786 ran his own first steamboat up the Potomac River. Fulton exhibited the first panorama painting to be shown in Paris, Pierre Prévost's Vue de Paris depuis les Tuileries, on what is still called Rue des Panoramas today. While living in France, Fulton designed the first working muscle-powered submarine, between 1793 and 1797, he experimented with torpedos. When tested, his submarine operated underwater for 17 minutes in 25 feet of water, he asked the government to subsidize its construction. He approached the Minister of Marine and in 1800 was granted permission to build; the shipyard Perrier in Rouen built it, the submarine sailed first in July 1800 on the Seine River in the same city. In France, Fulton met Robert R. Livingston, appointed as U. S. Ambassador to France in 1801, he had a scientifically curious mind, the two men decided to collaborate on building a steamboat and to try operating it on the Seine.
Lenawee County, Michigan
Lenawee County is a county located in the U. S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 99,892; the county seat is Adrian. The county was created from territory partitioned out of Monroe County, its governing structure was organized in 1826. Lenawee County comprises the Adrian, MI Micropolitan Statistical Area and is included in the Detroit-Warren-Ann Arbor, MI Combined Statistical Area, it is served by the Toledo Media market. The county organization was created in 1826, after being authorized and described by the Michigan legislature in 1822, it was taken from Michigan. The county's name is a Henry Schoolcraft neologism, thought to be derived from a Native American word meaning "male"—from the Delaware "leno or lenno" or the Shawnee "lenawai." According to the US Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 761 square miles, of which 750 square miles is land and 12 square miles is water. Lenawee County is considered to be part of Southeastern Michigan. Within Lenawee County's townships, north-south roads are referred to as "highways", while east-west roads are referred to as "roads".
Lenawee County has been reliably Republican in national elections. Since 1884, its voters have selected the Republican Party nominee in 85% of the national elections through 2016; the county government operates the jail, maintains rural roads, operates the major local courts, records deeds and vital records, administers public health regulations, participates with the state in the provision of social services. The county board of commissioners controls the budget and has limited authority to make laws or ordinances. In Michigan, most local government functions—police and fire and zoning, tax assessment, street maintenance, etc.—are the responsibility of individual cities and townships. Adrian College and Siena Heights University are located within the county. Lenawee County has supported candidates from both political parties in statewide elections making it a swing county. Tecumseh and Adrian have tended to lean Democrat, while Dover and Riga Townships have tended to lean Republican; the rural areas of the county are bastions of populism and libertarianism which helped the Tea Party Movement gain considerable support.
During the 2010 midterm elections, the county favored Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rick Snyder, Congressional candidate Tim Walberg, State Senate candidate Bruce Caswell, State Representative candidates Nancy Jenkins and Mike Shirkey. Lenawee County is located in Michigan's 7th congressional district, represented by Tea-Party backed Tim Walberg, a resident of the County. Walberg served as Lenawee's state representative. Walberg won the district, which includes all of Lenawee County, Jackson County, Hillsdale County, Branch County, Eaton County, as well as parts of Calhoun County and Washtenaw County, after defeating then-incumbent Democrat Mark Schauer. Schauer had defeated Walberg in the 2008 congressional election, after Walberg's first stint in Congress. Walberg defeated incumbent Republican Joe Schwarz, a former State Representative and gubernatorial candidate, during the 2006 primary election. During the 2006 midterm elections, Lenawee County voted for businessman Dick DeVos, the Republican nominee.
Most of Lenawee County is represented by Republican Nancy Jenkins in the Michigan House of Representatives. Jenkins represents the 57th District held by brothers Doug and Dudley Spade, both Democrats; each of the Spade brothers served for the maximum three terms. In 2008, Dudley Spade defeated Republican Emma Jenkins. Cambridge Township, which includes Onsted, is part of the 65th District, which covers much of the Irish Hills and is represented by Republican Mike Shirkey. Adrian is part of the 17th Senate District, represented by Dale Zorn of Michigan; until the 2014 state senate election, Lenawee County was part of the 16th State Senate District, represented by Republican Bruce Caswell of Hillsdale. Caswell was preceded by Republican Cameron Brown; the district contained all of Lenawee and Branch Counties. Current as of March 2019 Lenawee County Sheriff's Office Adrian City Police Blissfield Police Clinton Police Hudson Police Morenci Police Tecumseh Police Adrian Township Police Cambridge Township Police Columbia Township Police Madison Township Police Raisin Township Police Adrian & Blissfield Railroad Police As of the 2000 United States Census, there were 98,890 people, 35,930 households, 26,049 families in the county.
The population density was 132 people per square mile. There were 39,769 housing units at an average density of 53 per square mile; the racial makeup of the county was 92.51% White, 2.12% Black or African American, 0.41% Native American, 0.46% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 3.01% from other races, 1.49% from two or more races. 6.96% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race. 30.4% were of German, 11.6% English, 10.2% American and 9.9% Irish ancestry according to the 2000 United States Census. 94.7% spoke English and 4.2% Spanish as their first language. There were 35,930 households out of which 34.20% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 58.70% were married couples living together, 10.00% had a female householder with no husband present, 27.50% were non-families. 22.90% of all households were made up of individuals and 9.70% had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.61 and the average family size was 3.07.

A county seat is an administrative center, seat of government, or capital city of a county or civil parish. The term is used in Canada, Romania and the United States. County towns have a similar function in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland, in Jamaica. In most of the United States, counties are the political subdivisions of a state; the city, town, or populated place that houses county government is known as the seat of its respective county. The county legislature, county courthouse, sheriff's department headquarters, hall of records and correctional facility are located in the county seat though some functions may be located or conducted in other parts of the county if it is geographically large. A county seat is but not always, an incorporated municipality; the exceptions include the county seats of counties that have no incorporated municipalities within their borders, such as Arlington County, Virginia. Ellicott City, the county seat of Howard County, is the largest unincorporated county seat in the United States, followed by Towson, the county seat of Baltimore County, Maryland.
Some county seats may not be incorporated in their own right, but are located within incorporated municipalities. For example, Cape May Court House, New Jersey, though unincorporated, is a section of Middle Township, an incorporated municipality. In some of the colonial states, county seats include or included "Court House" as part of their name. In the Canadian provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the term "shire town" is used in place of county seat. County seats in Taiwan are the administrative centers of the counties. There are 13 county seats in Taiwan, which are in the forms of county-administered city, urban township or rural township. Most counties have only one county seat. However, some counties in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont have two or more county seats located on opposite sides of the county. An example is Harrison County, which lists both Biloxi and Gulfport as county seats; the practice of multiple county seat towns dates from the days.
There have been few efforts to eliminate the two-seat arrangement, since a county seat is a source of pride for the towns involved. There are 36 counties with multiple county seats in 11 states: Coffee County, Alabama St. Clair County, Alabama Arkansas County, Arkansas Carroll County, Arkansas Clay County, Arkansas Craighead County, Arkansas Franklin County, Arkansas Logan County, Arkansas Mississippi County, Arkansas Prairie County, Arkansas Sebastian County, Arkansas Yell County, Arkansas Columbia County, Georgia Lee County, Iowa Campbell County, Kentucky Kenton County, Kentucky Essex County, Massachusetts Middlesex County, Massachusetts Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bolivar County, Mississippi Carroll County, Mississippi Chickasaw County, Mississippi Harrison County, Mississippi Hinds County, Mississippi Jasper County, Mississippi Jones County, Mississippi Panola County, Mississippi Tallahatchie County, Mississippi Yalobusha County, Mississippi Jackson County, Missouri Hillsborough County, New Hampshire Seneca County, New York Bennington County, Vermont In New England, the town, not the county, is the primary division of local government.
Counties in this region have served as dividing lines for the states' judicial systems. Connecticut and Rhode Island have no county level of thus no county seats. In Vermont and Maine the county seats are designated shire towns. County government consists only of a Superior Court and Sheriff, both located in the respective shire town. Bennington County has two shire towns. In Massachusetts, most government functions which would otherwise be performed by county governments in other states are performed by town or city governments; as such, Massachusetts has dissolved many of its county governments, the state government now operates the registries of deeds and sheriff's offices in those counties. In Virginia, a county seat may be an independent city surrounded by, but not part of, the county of which it is the administrative center. Two counties in South Dakota have their county seat and government services centered in a neighboring county, their county-level services are provided by Fall River Tripp County, respectively.
In Louisiana, divided into parishes rather than counties, county seats are referred to as parish seats. Alaska is divided into boroughs rather than counties; the Unorganized Borough, which covers 49 % of Alaska's area, has equivalent. The state with the most counties is Texas, with 254, the state with the fewest counties is Delaware, with 3.

Toledo metropolitan area
The Toledo, metropolitan area is a metropolitan area centered on the American city of Toledo, Ohio. As of the 2010 census, the metropolitan statistical area had a population of 651,429, it is the sixth-largest metropolitan area in the state of Ohio, behind Cincinnati–Northern Kentucky, Columbus and Akron. Located on the border with Michigan, the metropolitan area includes the counties of Fulton and Wood; the Toledo metro area has strong ties to Metro Detroit, located 40 miles north. Toledo is part of the Great Lakes Megalopolis; the separate micropolitan area of Port Clinton, Ohio, is included in the Toledo–Port Clinton combined statistical area, which includes Ottawa County. The wider region of Northwest Ohio adds Defiance, Henry, Putnam, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams counties. There are several institutions of higher education; some of the larger schools include The University of Toledo, Mercy College of Ohio, Davis College in Toledo. Lourdes University in Sylvania, Stautzenberger College in Maumee, Owens Community College in Perrysburg Township, Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green.
According to a 2015 article, there were three Toledo companies. # 399 is Owens-Illinois, which specializes in glass packaging. #410 was Dana Corporation, a global leader in the supply of thermal-management technologies among many other specialties. Lastly, at #498, Owens Corning is the world leading provider of glass fiber technology. Just outside of the Toledo metropolitan in neighboring Findlay, Ohio, #25 Marathon Petroleum Corporation is headquartered; the economy of Toledo has been influenced by both the economy of nearby Detroit and agriculture. Health care and technology firms have tried to make their way into the metropolitan, though growth in those sectors has been slow. Instead and its suburbs are still home to several manufacturing and construction businesses and factories; the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported, in 2015, that manufacturing employment in Toledo had grown by 4.1% between December 2013 and December 2014. More so, construction job growth grew by nearly 10% in the same time period.
In 2014, manufacturing added 1,700 jobs to the Toledo area, but it saw losses in the business services. In 2014, the US Census Estimated there were 285,000 people employed in the Toledo metropolitan area. In August 2015, it was reported that Toledo's unemployment rate reached a 10-year low, in June 2015 just 5% of the regional population was unemployed, whereas the United States average unemployment was at 5.3% during the same period. As of the census of 2010, there were 659,188 people, 259,973 households, 169,384 families residing within the MSA; the racial makeup of the MSA was 83.03% White, 12.01% African American, 0.25% Native American, 1.07% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 1.79% from other races, 1.83% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.35% of the population. The median income for a household in the MSA was $42,686, the median income for a family was $51,882. Males had a median income of $38,959 versus $25,738 for females; the per capita income for the MSA was $20,694.
The Toledo–Port Clinton combined statistical area includes the Port Clinton micropolitan area. The population of the CSA in 2010 was 651,429. Since the 2000 Census, the Toledo-Fremont CSA has seen a decline in population of 14,468. Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments
