About Franklin County

Franklin County, Ohio is located in the central part of the state and is the most populous county in Ohio. It was established in 1803 and named after Benjamin Franklin. The county seat is Columbus, the state capital. The area that is now Franklin County was originally inhabited by the Wyandot, Shawnee, and Delaware Native American tribes. The first European settlers arrived in the area in the late 1700s. The county was officially established in 1803 and named after Benjamin Franklin. In the early 1800s, the county was largely agricultural, with small towns and villages scattered throughout the area. The county was also home to a number of industries, including iron and steel production, paper mills, and breweries. In the mid-1800s, the county experienced a period of rapid growth and development. The Ohio and Erie Canal was built in the county in 1825, connecting the Great Lakes to the Ohio River. This allowed for increased trade and commerce, and the county's population grew rapidly. The Civil War had a major impact on Franklin County. The county was home to several military camps, and many of its citizens served in the Union Army. After the war, the county continued to grow and develop. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the county experienced a period of industrialization. The city of Columbus became a major industrial center, and the county's population continued to grow. In the late 20th century, the county experienced a period of suburbanization. The population of the county grew rapidly, and many of the small towns and villages were absorbed into the larger cities. Today, Franklin County is a vibrant and diverse community. It is home to a number of major corporations, including Nationwide Insurance, Cardinal Health, and Huntington Bank. The county is also home to several universities, including Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College.
