Ohio is located in the East North Central states of the United States. Ohio is located on several main routes between the eastern and western United States. Therefore it attracted settlers from all parts of the country and developed a culture significant for its diversity. Ohio first developed as an agricultural region, and more than half of the land is still devoted to growing crops and raising livestock. The state’s position on major east-west highways and railroads and its access to Lake Erie and the Ohio River, however, offered a large potential market for industrial production. This strategic location, combined with the presence of abundant natural resources and potential sources of power, made possible the rise of the industrial concentrations that have made Ohio a leading industrial state.

Ohio takes its name from the Ohio River, which forms the southern and southeastern and part of the eastern boundaries of the state. The word Ohio is thought to derive from an Iroquois word meaning either great or beautiful river. Ohio is popularly nicknamed the Buckeye State because of the many buckeye trees that grew within its borders when settlers arrived. Some of the trees, a variety of horse chestnut, were used to build log cabins. The nickname Mother of Modern Presidents refers to the fact that Ohio was the birthplace of Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, and Warren G. Harding.

Ohio entered the Union on March 1, 1803, as the 17th state. Columbus is Ohio’s capital and largest city. Cleveland is at the heart of Ohio’s largest metropolitan area.

Ohio covers 44,828 square miles, including 376 square miles of inland water and 3,499 square miles of Lake Erie. It is the 34th largest state of the United States. The extreme dimensions of Ohio are about 225 miles east to west and about 215 miles north to south. The approximate mean elevation is 850 feet.

The climate of Ohio is characterized by warm to hot summers and mild to cold winters. The state receives both cold dry polar air from Canada and warm humid air from the Gulf of Mexico. Both air masses move alternately across the area, making changeability its chief characteristic. In winter, polar air is dominant, often coming in conflict with modified Gulf air and causing frontal or cyclonic storms. Gulf air is dominant in summer. In fall, polar air passing over Lake Erie is modified, delaying the killing frost along the adjacent shoreline.

The mean annual temperatures for the state range from 48° in the northeast to 55° in the south. Average January temperatures range from 24° in the west to 35° in the south. July averages are 76° in the south and 73° in the northeast.

Ohio normally has abundant precipitation, well distributed throughout the year. The average annual precipitation varies from 28 inches at Catawba Island, a resort on Lake Erie, to 46 inches in the elevated land between the Miami and Scioto rivers. Snows do occur but usually melt within one or two weeks.
