With graduation over and things quieting down for the summer, there has been one thing that has made sure its voice has been heard. The weather, of course. Over the past several days, Cedarville, Ohio has experienced some torrential downpours from severe thunderstorms, ranging from several inches of rain to multiple power outages. For three weeks now, the weather has changed nearly every day and then, by the end of the day, completely different.
Cedarville, Ohio is not located next to a beautiful beach with rows of palm trees and crystal clear water. We’re not in the mountains of Colorado with it’s beautiful white peaks and gorgeous panoramics. While Cedarville doesn’t have the luxuries of most travel destinations, what it does have makes it unique.
Cedarville, Ohio has a rich history dating itself back to the early 1800s. The native Americans, Hopewell and Adenas tribes primarily controlled the landscape until John and Thomas Townsley purchased 1000 acres of the land and named the city Newport’s Mill. Though the city had several name changes through the years, with its tall Cedar trees which grew in abundance here, the town came to its final name, Cedarville.
