A Brief History of Ohio
- Ohio was the first state to be organized out of the new Northwest Territory in the late 17th century, and was admitted as a state in early 1803. Growth during the period before the Civil War was slow, but during the War Ohio became a crucial part of the war effort as the state controlled the Ohio River, which was vital to troop and supply movements west of the Appalachians. After the war the state became a manufacturing powerhouse in the northern U.S. and remained so until the 1970’s, which saw massive shifts in economic policy that devastated the manufacturing belt in the northen U.S., particularly in Ohio and Michigan. Today the state’s economy has shifted away from manufacturing and more toward service-oriented industries, though many areas are still trying to recover from the economic devastation that came with the advent of the Rust Belt.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Ohio
- When transporting a vehicle to or from Ohio, you’ll probably find it’ll be a bit cheaper and quicker if you’re moving your vehicle into or out of a major metro area. Cities like Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus all sit along major interstates (in fact, all three are connected by I-71, which runs northeast from Louisville, KY to Cleveland, where it terminates). It also helps that there are multiple major metro areas along those other interstates – for instance, I-90 runs through Toledo and Cleveland in the north, while I-70 runs through Dayton and Columbus, and connects with cities such as Indianapolis and Philadelphia. Ohio during the winter can be more expensive, as there’s usually some type of severe weather somewhere in the state, but most of the rest of the time it’s fairly easy and cost effective to transport a vehicle from or to Ohio.
