Two hundred years ago, Rufus Putnam, leader of the Ohio Company, sent eleven men west into the Ohio Country to found what is now the City of Athens. As one of the oldest communities in Ohio, Athens has a heritage rich in history and lore. Now, as Athens looks ahead to its third century, historian and raconteur Robert L. Daniel provides a timely assessment of the community’s past. Drawing on reminiscences by Athens residents over the past two centuries, and on newspaper accounts, institutional archives, census records, and a host of historic photographs and drawings, Daniel illustrates how the Athens community grew, how it changed over the years, and what it was like to have lived in Athens in the past, from the times before white settlement to 1920. He identifies the problems the community faced and how it went about resolving them—its efforts to provide local government, the changing ways its people earned a living, the ways they worshipped, their efforts to establish Ohio University, how they coped during times of war, and what they did to amuse themselves. In a lively style peppered with firsthand accounts by the people who made Athens, Daniel narrates his tale with wry humor and a sharp eye for detail. Always focusing on the people who lived there, he brings Athens to life during its village years.

I am greatly enjoying this book. Though I have several books on the area, this one is my fav since it is heavy on info while others emphasize photos. This book gives a comprehensive history of the area starting with the southwest Ohio Native American dwellers and traveling through the 1920s. It explains how Ohio University was grown from scratch by a small group of pioneers without much help from the state government and how the various churches, businesses and individuals impacted the community. It gives quite a bit of context about how Ohio and the US grew during those times, too. The index is invaluable for looking up specific details. I came back to Amazon to order the next volume in the author's series called Athens: The Urban Years, which details the growth of the town in more recent times, but don't find it listed. I hope Mr. Daniels is working on it!
