121 CIVIL AND MUNICIPAL VOLUME 2, ISSUE 6 OHIO Empowering businesses to succeed A t the heart of Ohio’s Appalachia, less than a two-hour drive outside Cleveland is scenic Carroll County , a most desirable place to live, work, and enjoy life to its fullest. Blessed with charming small towns and breathtaking landscapes, there’s always something to do in the County – whether its shopping at a delightful local business, going fishing on Atwood Lake, or celebrating Ohio’s colonial history during The Great Trail Festival. Commemorating its historic past is a significant part of Carroll County’s identity, as it’s positioned on the overland route used in the 1700s by Indigenous Americans and fur traders. After Ohio became a state in 1803, The Great Trail was the only way travelers could enter the area from the east. On Christmas Day in 1832, the state authorized the creation of Carroll County; named for Charles Carroll the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. CARROLL COUNTY,
