LOCAL GOVERNMENT RECORDS

The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center holds local government records for a number of political subdivisions. Nearly all of the textual files relate to the county, municipalities, and townships of Sandusky County, Ohio, while many of the microfilm records are associated with counties of Northwest Ohio. The records are available for public use during the Hayes Center's regular hours. Additional records for Sandusky County and adjacent counties may be found at the Center for Archival Collections, located on the third floor of the Jerome Library on the campus of Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Charged with carrying out Ohio's Local Government Records Program, the Center for Archival Collections is the official repository for the public records of the nineteen counties that make up Northwest Ohio.
