Paulding County, Ohio

Paulding County was formed from old Indian Territory, April 1, 1820. It was named for John Paulding, one of the three militia men who captured Major Andre in the War of the Revolution. The surface was level and the county covered by the Great Black Swamp. Hardy settlers drained the swamp and cleared the timber to make their homes and livelihoods. Paulding County covers 420 square miles.
