Let me tell you about a little place called Eaton,Ohio.

Isn’t it funny that when you don’t have to go to school that’s when you find interest in subjects like history?  I was curious about howEaton,Ohiocame to be SO as we do all things nowadays, I googled it. 

So, this is what I have found so far…

Eaton is a small city located inPrebleCounty.  Actually, it’s the only city in Preble County.  All of other locations such as West Alexandria (to some West Alex), Lewisburg, Gratis, just to name a few, are all villages.  Hmmm, makes you think…what’s the difference? (I think I’ll save that for another time.)

Eaton, Ohio was named after the USConsul at Tunis during the Tripolitan War, General William Eaton.  General Eaton led his army through a horrific march fromEgypttoTripolito meet the US Naval forces.  Streets such as Decatur, Israel, Wadsworthand Somers are named in honor of various heroes.  Just some historical facts.

How about these little tidbits about this quiet city.  You’ll find in the summer the Preble County Fair, during the fall there is always the Preble County Pork Festival, or to celebrate the holidays come by to see Eaton’s White Christmas.  That’s only a few happenings during the year.
