Celebrating 200 Years as Jefferson Township

Celebrating 200 Years as Jefferson Township

According to records, Jefferson Township was established on the 6th of September in 1816. Exactly 200 years ago today. It's common to wonder what life was like in the early days of Jefferson Township, and township residents today are not alone in that. In 1880, William Bros. published the "History of Franklin and Pickaway Counties, Ohio with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of Some of the Prominent Men and Pioneers". Reading the book in 2016 allows you a glimpse of life in both 1816 and 1880. Click to read excerpts from the Jefferson Township chapter.
