Welcome to the Hancock County Journal, dedicated to the men and women of the armed forces who help keep Ohio and the United States of America free. Thank you for your service.
Dedicated to the early pioneers of the Northwest Territory who forged their way west to start a new life of unparalleled freedom in history.
The story of Hancock County is the story of Ohio and the story of Ohio is the story of all us. Americans. A 250 year old republic. A young republic. A young democracy.
Designed to educate and possibly entertain and offered as a tribute to pioneers in history.
And dedicated to making Ohio more famous in the world. If you are from Europe, and have never been to America, Ohio is not the most famous state. It should be. Of course, when you are making your plans to visit America for the first time, Ohio is not a place that is going to be part of your travel plans.
That’s why I made this site. To make Ohio more famous. It’s a quest. And everyone likes quest, especially in 2014. Join me and don’t be afraid to offer a comment, I moderate them all, the more time you spend clicking on links inside the website, the more you learn.
And one of the things that would help make Ohio more famous is winning a championship in one of the four major sports – hockey, football, basketball and baseball. Ohio has not had a championship in any of the four major sports since 1990.
And, most importantly, because the story deserves to be told.
