General Information
"With God, all things are possible"
―State Motto
Ohio, the Buckeye State; was the 17th to be admitted into the United States, and part of the East Central Commonwealth. It is bordered by Indiana to the west, Michigan to the north, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to the east, and Kentucky to the south.


"The climate of Ohio is perfect, considered as the home of an ideal republican people. Climate has much to do with national character.... A climate which permits labor out-of-doors every month in the year and which requires industry to secure comfort—to provide food, shelter, clothing, fuel, etc.—is the very climate which secures the highest civilization."
―Rutherford B. Hayes
East Central Commonwealth
