Product Description:
"Ohio's Forgotten History" - a 450-page hardcover book filled with abandoned and forgotten places across Ohio. Hospitals, schools, churches, theaters, hotels, homes, industry, bridges, diners, malls, amusement parks and more. Ohio holds a huge collection of history that continues to fade away. Eventually all that will be left of many of these places are the photographs and memories. Ohio has so much incredible history that has been saved, but at the same time so much history that remains throughout these abandoned places, practically forgotten. Though they have been forgotten, there is such an interesting beauty inside their walls, decay and all. Factories such as the former Westinghouse, one of the most important in the history of the industrial revolution. George Westinghouse was also a pioneer of the electrical industry, gaining his first patent at the age of 19. His company had even employed Nikola Tesla. A former Westinghouse factory remains abandoned in Cleveland falling to pieces. The former Paisley Farms pickle jarring factory (shown on the cover) was abandoned for years and had become wildly overgrown before eventually being demolished. Once the largest mall in America, Randall Park Mall once sat on land now occupied by an Amazon distribution center. The mall had sat crumbling for years, and in this book you will find photos and history of the rise and fall of the massive shopping center. A church built in 1903, abandoned for 27 years nearly untouched. The industrial powerhouses that Ohio had become home to were some of the most important in history, and so many now sit abandoned, while some have been demolished. Companies that offered so much during World War II, rusting and rotting away. Cleveland was even home to the company that created the devices to monitor the Bikini Atoll nuclear tests (the tests that brought much of the story of Spongebob Squarepants to life)

  • The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West Hardcover - May 7, 2019
Product Description:
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David McCullough rediscovers an important and dramatic chapter in the American story—the settling of the Northwest Territory by dauntless pioneers who overcame incredible hardships to build a community based on ideals that would come to define our country.

As part of the Treaty of Paris, in which Great Britain recognized the new United States of America, Britain ceded the land that comprised the immense Northwest Territory, a wilderness empire northwest of the Ohio River containing the future states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. A Massachusetts minister named Manasseh Cutler was instrumental in opening this vast territory to veterans of the Revolutionary War and their families for settlement. Included in the Northwest Ordinance were three remarkable conditions: freedom of religion, free universal education, and most importantly, the prohibition of slavery. In 1788 the first band of pioneers set out from New England for the Northwest Territory under the leadership of Revolutionary War veteran General Rufus Putnam. They settled in what is now Marietta on the banks of the Ohio River.

McCullough tells the story through five major characters: Cutler and Putnam; Cutler’s son Ephraim; and two other men, one a carpenter turned architect, and the other a physician who became a prominent pioneer in American science. They and their families created a town in a primeval wilderness, while coping with such frontier realities as floods, fires, wolves and bears, no roads or bridges, no guarantees of any sort, all the while negotiating a contentious and sometimes hostile relationship with the native people. Like so many of McCullough’s subjects, they let no obstacle deter or defeat them.

Drawn in great part from a rare and all-but-unknown collection of diaries and letters by the key figures, The Pioneers is a uniquely American story of people whose ambition and courage led them to remarkable accomplishments. This is a revelatory and quintessentially American story, written with David McCullough’s signature narrative energy.

Product Description:
The story of early Ohio from the days of the Mound Builders to the Victorian Age. This is a story of the people who lived in what is now the Great State of Ohio during those times. A story of the Native Americans who were there before the coming of the white settlers and a story of the savage raids and battles fought in the struggle to gain or retain control of this rich, vast territory. A story of the men and women who participated in these events along with the suffering and hardships faced by all in a struggle to keep their home or in their quest to find a better life for themselves and their descendants. In 1897, William Dean Howells, a novelist who was born in Martins Ferry, Ohio, to show the love of his native state and provide people with its history, authored the book “Stories of Ohio”. This book is a wonderful, intriguing look at the history of the Great State of Ohio and those who called it home. Badgley Publishing Company has taken the contents of his book, added more material and illustrations and re-created this historically significant work in an effort to preserve his story and make it available to the public again.

Product Description:
History is one of the most important subjects that ties people and communities in any given geographic area together by a common thread. When buildings and structures from earlier times are still physically around to see, it makes remembering and appreciating the past much easier. It's also more fun to learn about history when there's something tangible left from it. Unfortunately, we're currently living in an era when Ohio is losing its history quicker than it's being made, and once something original is gone, it can never be brought back.

Thankfully, hundreds of buildings, structures, and entire towns have been restored through the efforts of citizens and leaders who care deeply about the past, and realize the necessity of preserving history for both the present and future generations. Despite the ruin old buildings and structures potentially face, there's certainly no shortage of them around the Buckeye State. So, pack up a picnic basket and gas up the car! After reading this book, you will likely be yearning for an adventurous road trip.

Product Description:
Many of the places that helped make Dayton a center of innovation were lost to history, while others survived and adapted, representing the city's spirit of revitalization. Some of the city's distinctive and significant structures, such as Steele High School and the Callahan Building, were demolished, while others, including the Arcade and Centre City Building, saw hard times but now await redevelopment. Entire neighborhoods, such as the Haymarket, and commercial districts, such as West Fifth Street, vanished and show no traces of their past. Others, including the popular Oregon District, narrowly escaped the wrecking ball. From the Wright Brothers Factory to the park that hosted the first NFL game, Andrew Walsh explores the diverse selection of retail, industrial, entertainment and residential sites from Dayton's disappearing legacy.

The Ohio Frontier
Crucible of the Old Northwest, 1720–1830

R. Douglas Hurt

"This exhaustively researched and well-written book provides a comprehensive history of Ohio from 1720 to 1830."
―Journal of the Early Republic

Nowhere on the American frontier was the clash of cultures more violent than in the Ohio country. There, Shawnees, Wyandots, Delawares, and other native peoples fought to preserve their land claims against an army that was incompetent at the beginning but highly trained and disciplined in the end.
