Gazetteers list geographical names such as towns, settlements, rivers, mountains, villages, and districts. They identify these locations and sometimes give details concerning them. Several gazetteers of Ohio have been published.

Early Settlements

One of the most valuable sources for finding the names of early towns and geographical features is:

  • The Ohio Gazetteer [1]

Another major reference source for identifying Ohio localities is:

  • Ohio Place Names [2]
