Findlay, Ohio

 

population: 38,967. the seat of hancock county.

 

they named it after colonel james findlay, but the town spelled it with an e instead of an a from 1821 until 1870 when they realized their mistake. county named after john hancock, and a statue of him sits 130 feet above the 1833 courthouse. sits on i-75 in the northwest part of ohio.

called flag city usa. home of marathon oil, the big gas company. the art deco lookin' midrise belongs to 'em. home of the ohio bank(now sky bank) and has the university of findlay. and a parking garage downtown, yipee! here we go now, the first city of the day

Interesting! Nice shots of that Marathon Oil adminstrative complex. Wow..a massive corporate HQ building right in the middle what looks like a fairly typical Ohio county seat town.

it's a nice place. they also have another big company hq--whirpool. i was an intern there for a year in grad school. i had to switch from my 20+ mile north commute from bg to toledo for my college job to my 20+ mile south commute to findlay. mostly all i recall is i hated that drive in the dead of winter, but one time there was a rare 'inversion sunrise' on the way and all the cars on the highway pulled over on I-75 to look at it. i'll never forget that, it was rare weather event-- the sun looked like an hourglass shape in the sky, very haunting, i've never seen anything like it since.

^I meant Troy looks more alive, but Findlay looks like it has the potential, although I agree Findlay is much larger. The courthouse in Troy is ugly, thats for sure.

what a neat city, larger than I would have expected somehow.  It is very tidy, and the architecture is 'substantial', well built, solid stock.  thx for the many pix
