About Highland County

Highland County, Ohio is located in the southwestern part of the state and is part of the Appalachian region. It was formed in 1805 from parts of Adams, Ross, and Clermont counties. The county was named for its hilly terrain, which is part of the Appalachian Plateau. The first settlers in Highland County were mostly of German and Scotch-Irish descent. They arrived in the early 1800s and began to establish farms and small towns. The county was officially organized in 1807 and the first county seat was located in Hillsboro. The county experienced rapid growth in the mid-1800s due to the construction of the Miami and Erie Canal. This allowed for easier transportation of goods and people, and the county's population grew rapidly. The county also experienced a boom in the timber industry, as the area was rich in hardwood forests. The Civil War had a major impact on Highland County. Many of the county's residents enlisted in the Union Army, and the county was the site of several skirmishes. After the war, the county's economy shifted to focus more on agriculture, and the population continued to grow. In the late 1800s, Highland County was home to several industries, including coal mining, brick making, and glass manufacturing. The county also became a popular tourist destination, as it was home to several natural attractions, such as the Rocky Fork State Park. Highland County experienced a decline in population in the early 1900s, as many of its residents moved to larger cities in search of better job opportunities. However, the county has experienced a resurgence in recent years, as many people have moved back to the area to take advantage of its rural charm and natural beauty. Today, Highland County is home to a diverse population and is a popular destination for outdoor recreation.
