Logan and Hocking County
Gov. Thomas Worthington first came upon the Great Falls of the Hock-Hocking while searching for a location for a wheat and corn mill. Worthington suspected rich mineral resources lay beneath the rolling hills, and he reasoned the area could grow and flourish. In his diary he wrote, "27 June 1816. I begin to lay out a town 1 mile east of the Falls." The coming of the canal in 1840 was instrumental in the growth of the small county-seat village. Prosperity improved when coal mining and clay manufacturing dominated the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Logan and Hocking County is a look at the past, present, and hopeful future of this typical small-town community in southeastern Ohio.
