Cambridge is a small town located in the southeastern region of Ohio. Local history states that the first legal bridge in the Northwest Territory was that built by Ebenezer Zane over Wills Creek. Zane was commissioned in 1796 to cut a road from Ohio to Kentucky, and named the area in honor of Cambridge, Maryland. In 1806, a group of immigrants from the Isle of Guernsey, in the English Channel, settled in the newly formed village of Cambridge, because, according to the legend, the women in the party refused to move on. Today, Cambridge is located at the intersection of Interstates 70 and 77, making it a popular tourist destination. The area boasts many recreational facilities, tourist attractions, a public library, schools, churches, parks, and business and social clubs. Area facts: Population: 13,000 Area: 16 square miles Major Highways: U.S. 22, U.S. 40, SR-209, and Interstate 70 and 77. Airports: Cambridge Airport, 2 miles south of the city.
Chillicothe was Ohio's first capital. The Chillicothe Statehouse was the first stone building erected in Ohio.
The city is nestled in the valleys and hills along the Ohio River in Southwestern part of Ohio. The town Losantiville (later to be known as Cincinnati) was founded in 1788 by Mathias Denman, Robert Patterson and Israel Ludlow. The name was changed by General Arthur St. Clair to Cincinnati in honor of the Society of Cincinnati, an organization of Revolutionary War officers founded by George Washington. In 1802, Cincinnati was chartered as a village, and in 1819 incorporated as a city. Large numbers of Germans immigrated to Cincinnati, giving the city a rich European heritage. Cincinnati is known as the "Queen City of the West," which was made famous by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his poem "Catawba Wine."

Cuyahoga Falls is rich in history, from its start in 1812 to the present. The town was originally named Manchester, but that was later changed to the present name at the request of the Ohio Postmaster General. The Cuyahoga River runs both north and south through the City due to the way the river bends. It is also one of only a few rivers in the northern hemisphere which runs predominantly northward. The Cuyahoga "Falls", which extend over about 2 miles, collectively drop farther than Niagara Falls. The Ohio and Pennsylvania and Ohio Canals linked the Cuyahoga and Lake Erie together between 1825 and 1832. Because of this, and its strategic location on the Cuyahoga, Cuyahoga Falls became an important stop on the underground railroad. Subsequent industrialization really put Cuyahoga Falls on the because of the convenient access to the Great Lakes. On January 1, 1986, Cuyahoga Falls and Northampton Township became the first two communities in the history of the State of Ohio to successfully merge by voter approval. The relatively rural character of the former township has added a balance to the more developed core of the old city.
