    Town: Bloom Township

    From History Of Fairfield County, Ohio, And Representative Citizens: BLOOM TOWNSHIP Bloom township is in the western tier of townships. It is bounded on the north by Violet, on the east by Greenfield, on the south by Amanda and on the west by Pickaway County. It is laid out regularly six sections each direction. There are no large streams in this township, though the Hocking river rises near the center of the township. The Hocking Valley crosses this township across Section 1, in the extreme northeastern part, there are four good pikes running in nearly every direction. The Scioto Valley Traction line and the Ohio Canal pass through sections one and two. The township was laid off in 1805; the early settlers were the Hushors, Meyers, Glicks, Clarks, Hoys, Courtrights, Scotts, Crites, Williamsons and others. Abraham Van Courtright came from Pennsylvania in 1801. He married Miss McFarland of Greenfield Township and settled two miles south of Lockville near the Betzer Church. Jesse D. Courtright laid out Greencastle in 1810 and had it surveyed by John Hamilton. Samuel Weisser came from Pennsylvania in 1818 and kept a blacksmith shop for forty years. He was justice of the peace for thirty-five years and an official member of the church fifty years. The Presbyterian Church was built in 1861. Names that are connected with this church are Abraham, John and Jacob Courtright, J. A. Whitzel, Samuel Weiner, H. R. Roller, L. C. Friebley, William Swayer. The present (1912) pastor is B. F. Munson who also serves the church at Lithopolis. The Rock Mill was built in 1799 and was the first of its kind in the township. The building was low down among the rocks and the grists were taken in at the gable window and let down to the hopper with ropes. The first still-house was at the Stump Spring and was owned by J. D. Courtright. The Alspaughs, Williamsons, Granels, Blenbaughs all have left large numbers of descendants in Bloom township. Among prominent farmers today we note the names of A. V. Courtright, Reuben Faler, W. R. Coffman, C.C. Crist, S. P. Mathia, William Sitterly, C. E. Berry, Austin Smith, J. C. Hummell, Ed. M. Heister, Albert Runkle, Peter Dotson, Frank Zwayer, Irwin Solt.

  8. The Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society was organized in 1987. Its mission is to preserve our community’s past for future generations to see and use. OUR MUSEUM Our Museum is located in the Olde Carnegie Library which was built in 1916 with a $10,000 grant from Andrew Carnegie. Pickerington was the smallest community in the United States to receive such a grant. When a new, larger library was constructed on Opportunity Way in 1993, the Library Board donated the Carnegie Library to the city of Pickerington with the stipulation that a museum be created and maintained. The Pickerington-Violet Township Historical Society has filled the main level of the Museum with a collection of artifacts and memorabilia including the original town pump, antique household items, clothing, business signage and equipment, school furnishings, photographs, written histories, birth certificates, death records dating from the early 1900s, and more. In addition, a gift shop offers visitors a variety of souvenirs which depict our area’s past. Included are note and postcards, prints, books, pottery, china, throws and T-shirts. The lower level is the home of photographs of Pickerington-Violet Township high school graduating classes from 1909 to 1981. This area also serves as the Historical Society’s meeting room as well as the office/warehouse for the Pickerington Food Pantry. http://www.pickering...calsociety.com/ View full record
  9. In 1962, seven Fairfield County women decided something should be done to preserve the lovely old homes of Lancaster, Ohio. They met at Petie Smith's house and signed a document of intent.

  11. George Berry founded Bremen in 1834 naming the new village after his father-in-law's hometown of Bremen, Germany. During the 1800s the village grew slowly, serving mainly as a service center for local farmers. In the 1850s the railroad came to Bremen. Then in 1907, oil was discovered in Bremen. Due to the boom, Bremen grew quickly and accumulated much wealth. The profit brought in by the oil was used to establish local industry, build a downtown commercial center, and line the streets of Bremen with beautiful homes (many of which can be seen today in the town). In 1907, Bremen, Ohio, was considered “Oil City.” Most of the villagers were in some way related to or were oil drillers themselves. Bremen was a boom-town. The Village was growing slowly in 1884, with a population of 200 inhabitants. However, this all changed with the “oil boom,” which began around 1907. Small quantities of gas and oil had been produced by local wells before this, but when wells began producing 140 barrels per day and 250 barrels per day, the race was on! Bremen enjoyed unparalleled prosperity during the next seven or eight years, then settled down to become an agricultural community once again. Outlying areas, including the private sector, also reaped the benefits of the gas and oil industry. Bremen Area Historical Society P.O.
