About Ohio State

Ohio, a state in the Midwestern US, is known for rolling hills, covered bridges, wilderness and historic homes. Ohio is a state located in the Midwestern region of the United States. It is the 34th largest by land area, the 7th most populous of all the US states. The name Ohio is taken from the American Indian word, ohi-yo, which means 'great river'. The state's nickname is 'The Buckeye State' for its distinct Buckeye trees.

History of Ohio

Archaeological evidence shows that people had lived in the regions of Ohio since 13,000 BC. Between 1000 BC to 800 BC, there were semi-permanent villages already set up across the Ohio Valley. In 1650, the Iroquois Indians lived between the areas of the Ohio River and Great Lake.

The region was claimed by the French in the 18th century, who set up trading posts in the region, for the purpose of controlling the fur trade industry that was booming in the region. After the French and Indian War in 1754, the British colonial possession followed. By the end of the American Revolution, the British conceded their control of the region to the growing United States.

Ohio was then included in the great Northwest Territory. The region eventually received statehood status on March 1, 1803, but it was never formally declared. It wasn't until 1953 that President Dwight Eisenhower officially signed the original documents that the formal declaration was made.
