History and Genealogy

History of Auglaize County


Great pains have been taken to provide educational facilities for all the youth of the county, and the comfortable school buildings, which present themselves to view on every hand, attest the value placed upon education by the people. These may not have reached the highest degree of efficiency, but the solicitude and jealousy of the people is a guarantee of the advancement and higher usefulness of the schools.
