Introduction

Long before the first pioneers

came, Indian tribes had established

a camp in Delaware on the trail lead-

ing from the lower Scioto valley

northward to the Sandusky Bay

area. A variety of medicinal springs

may have been a factor in their se-

lection. One of these springs is still

productive on the Ohio Wesleyan

campus.

In 1808, a division of Franklin

County created Delaware County.

The city was founded the same year.

It immediately became the county

seat, and because it is almost at the

geographical center of the State of

Ohio, and because then, as is true to-

day, it was situated conveniently on

some of the main thoroughfares of

the state, it was seriously considered

for the state capitol before Columbus

was selected.

In the early 1800's Delaware was

one of the most popular health re-

sorts in what was known as the

"west." Its Mansion House Hotel

with its sulphur spring was, in fact,

pictured on Staffordshire plates from

England.

During the War of 1812, Delaware

served as the headquarters for Gen-

eral Harrison. But the city's great-

est historical distinction probably

stems from the fact that it is the

birthplace of our nation's 19th Pres-

ident, Rutherford B. Hayes. Many

relics of the city's past may be seen

at the Delaware County Historical

Society Museum at 157 East William

Street.

For more than a century, Delaware

has been one of the outstanding cul-

tural centers of the state because it

is the home of Ohio Wesleyan Uni-

versity.

Delaware

The county seat of Delaware Coun-

ty is 24 miles north of Columbus. It

is nationally known as the home of

Ohio Wesleyan University and the

site of the "Little Brown Jug" Grand

Circuit harness racing classic event

held annually each September.

A city of over 15,000 population,

modern Delaware is a combination of

industrial, cultural, and agricultural

influences. Its location, midway be-

tween Cleveland and Cincinnati, and

its proximity to Columbus, together

with the presence of the university,

have been some of the chief factors

in the city's growth. The transpor-

tation facilities afforded by two rail-

roads, four major U.S. highways, in-

clusing easy access to the Interstate

highways, and the local municipal air-

port have assisted greatly in the de-

velopment of Delaware industry.

Tree shaded streets, with an inter-

mingling of old and new homes and

pride of ownership, describe the city's

residential areas. Many people who

are employed in Columbus and neigh-

[photo]

boring areas choose to live in Dela-

ware. Due to its convenient central

Ohio location as well as in the mid-

western United States, a great many

sales representatives call Delaware

home.

A modern up-to-date school system

affords fine educational opportuni-

ties. Modern retail stores offer a wide

variety of merchandise.

Diversified industry, numerous re-

tail and service establishments and

many miscellaneous places of employ-

ment provide a wide range of job op-

portunities.

Delaware is operated under an effi-

cient city manager/council form of

government. Tax dollars are spent

wisely. Many city improvements

have been completed and others are

underway. An expressway facili-

tates through traffic. A comprehen-

sive city master plan is being up-

dated. The Delaware reservoir pro-

vides the city with an adequate water

supply well into the future. A coun-

ty wide water system is under devel-

opment.

A modern hospital staffed by a

corp of fine physicians and surgeons

offers the latest in medical care.

Situated in Delaware County are

three large dams and their reservoirs

with two more in the construction

and planning stage. Boating and fish-

ing abound on all sides. Golf needs

are fulfilled by a country club and

numerous private and public courses.

A full-time recreation program is

maintained by the city.

Ohio Wesleyan offers the towns-

people concerts, plays, and noted

speakers. Community and college

sports attract many fans. All of the

cultural advantages of the Columbus

area are just minutes away.

One of the finest summer stock

theatres in the midwest is located

only 12 miles south of the city.

Industry

Delaware, with its beginning in

1808, has grown steadily since that

date. From the first industries of

salt and flour, diversification has ad-

vanced to over 50 products including

truck bodies, aerial lifts, air condi-

tioning equipment, stoves, industrial

finishes, brick and concrete products,

beverage containers, electric controls,

metal castings, plastics, copper pro-

ducts, wooden games for recreation,

automation machinery, hydraulic

components, and many others.

The 1960's proved to be a period of

exceptional industrial expansion. The

Delaware Industrial Park, opened in

1963, resulted in the erection of a

number of new plant facilities, with

more in the offing.

"That's one small step for man-- one

giant leap for mankind." But down

to earth is the research and technol-

ogy that makes space exploration pos-

sible and others that enrich our en-

vironment. Delaware's growing re-

search facilities include telecommuni-

cations for home, industry, and space;

entomology, forestry and medical lab-

oratories; an astronomical observa-

tory and a radio telescope.

Housing

Delaware offers attractive housing

in all areas and price ranges. It has

many beautiful older residential areas

with well maintained streets and

stately trees. It also boasts of new

residential areas which are located

in nearly all parts of the city.

Prices of older homes vary in

range of $10,000 to $40,000, depend-

ing upon location and modernization.

New home prices vary in the range

of $16,000 to $50,000, depending up-

on location, dimensions and lot size.

Many new modern apartments have

been constructed in the last five

years and they rent from $95 to $185

per month depending on size and fa-

cilities. There are also many apart-

ments converted from fraternity

houses and large homes. These range

in price from $75 to $150 per month

depending on size and facilities. Be-

ing a small city, Delaware has many

fine homes in the suburban-rural

area with acreage. These are priced

from $18,000 to $35,000, depending

on the age of the home, size, location,

and the amount of acreage.

Real estate here has maintained

its value over the years, as pride of

ownership is excellent.

Insurance

All areas of Delaware County are

protected by well-trained, well-

equipped fire departments. A num-

ber of these departments also main-

tain emergency vehicles with person-

nel trained in first aid procedures.

The City of Delaware enjoys a class

5 fire rate by the Ohio Rating Bur-

eau. The department is also recog-

nized as being one of the better

trained in the state.

The department carries on an ex-

tensive fire training program in all

industrial plants in the city as well

as a safety program within the school.

Delaware County is rated territory

39 which allows its residents the most

reasonable automobile rate available

in Ohio.

Communications

Local radio stations include WDLR,

WRFD, WSLN-FM and WBBY-FM.

All Columbus metropolitan radio,

three network television stations and

one UHF Station, WOSU, operated by

Ohio State University, offer excellent

reception. The Delaware Gazette, a

daily newspaper, serves the com-

munity and area.

Organizations

Many international and national

service, community and patriotic or-

ganizations are represented in this

area, including Kiwanis, Rotary,

Lions, Jr. Chamber of Commerce, Ser-

toma, Altrusa, National Association

Agriculture

Agriculture is important to the

economy of this county. The 1964

United States Census of Agriculture

states that there were 1286 farms

covering 206,861 acres. This repre-

sents 73 percent of the county area.

In 1968, the total cash sales of farm

produce were $14,801,000.

Dairy products, soy beans and

grains are the leading sources of in-

come. Other major products include

cattle and hogs. Lesser products in-

clude poultry, sheep and wool, horses,

honey, oats, hay, popcorn, vegetables

and fruits.

The various soils of Delaware

County are composed of residues

from three glaciers. The most recent

was the Wisconsin Glacier of about

20,000 years ago. Soils formed by

glacial drift are productive and re-

spond to good management. The

trend in Delaware County is follow-

ing the national trend toward fewer,

larger, and more mechanized farms.

Specialization is in effect as the coun-

ty is located near areas of population

expansion. This provides desirable

marketing facilities for all farm pro-

ducts.

Agriculture education and informa-

tion is made available to all interest-

ed residents of the county by the ex

tension workers and vocational teach-

ers in all county and city schools.

There are eighty 4-H Clubs in the

county and city with departments of

Future Farmers and Future Home-

makers.

Climate

The climate of the county is contin-

ental, characterized by moderately

warm summers and cold though usu-

ally not severe winters. The mois-

ture is well distributed throughout

the year. The mean annual precipi-

tation is 36.76 inches with 17.32 inch-

es from May thru September. The

summer seasson has 70% sunny days.

An average year has 101 clear days,

118 partly cloudy and 146 cloudy

days. The average mean tempera-

tures are 28 degrees in January and

73 degrees in July.
