Government and the institutions it creates must evolve over time or they stagnate and eventually die. The institutions that existed when Ohio celebrated her first one hundred years have, for the most part evolved with the social and economic evolution of the state and country. Some have been renamed; some serve a purpose not envisaged when they were created; some have new physical buildings and surroundings; none have disappeared completely. All are part of our history and have provided vital services while forming the state as it is today.
Descriptions and illustrations for this section of the Ohio ALHN are taken from The Ohio Hundred Year Book by Elliot Howard Gilkey (Columbus, Fred J. Heer, State Printer, 1901), pages 652-759.
