Warren County, Ohio and Beyond


Mr. Bogan is the local history writer for The Western Star, the oldest continually published, weekly newspaper in Ohio. This paper, founded in 1807, is published in Lebanon, Ohio. Mr. Bogan has been writing his column since January of 1993. In this book, he has collected and consolidated a diverse assortment of his articles relating to Warren County history. His chapter titles include: Warren County, Towns and Villages, Transportation, American Civil War, Biographical Sketches, Native Americans, Religious Denominations, and Lebanon, Ohio. There are articles on everything from pioneers demanding a system of county roads to courageous participants in the Underground Railroad, from facts about the corn canning industry to the origins of the Stetson cowboy hat, from political battles among local towns to communal bonding through such experiences as the devasting Harveysburg fire in 1939. A wide range of historical periods is covered. The Ohio researcher will find many names, from prominent citizens listed in the biographical sketches to happy elementary school children celebrating Easter or making the honor roll in the 1920s and ‘30s. An everyname index makes it easy to look up particular individuals.
