In November of 1883, some of the most notorious bandits in the area came through Richland County. Five Members of the Foster Gang, who terrorized northern Ohio and southern Michigan, had just attempted to blow a safe in New Washington, Crawford County, Ohio the night of November 29, 1883.
Since we began publishing in 2016, 1812Blockhouse has shared details about pieces of local history that dot Richland County. Through our Landmarks of Mansfield series and our Landmarks of Richland series, we have presented research on over 40 buildings, monuments, and downtowns.
As we begin 2020, we’re eager to add to that number, and we’re turning to you for help. Do you have a favorite local landmark that you’d like to see profiled on 1812Blockhouse?
