When it comes to local history, there aren't many secondary sources available. I'm an amateur historian, which also means that I'm lazy. I want to give credit where credit is due--the knowledgeable folks at http://www.urbanohio.com provide much of the inspiration for many posts here. It's probably the best Internet source out there for all things Ohio, past, present and future. I highly recommend that anyone interested in staying on top of the goings-on in the city read this blog.
