Is situated in the northwestern part of the State, and contains an area
of 530 square miles. The surface of the county is generally level or
slightly rolling, and the soil admirably adapted to the production of all
kinds of grain, grasses, fruit and vegetables that flourish in this
latitude. Stock-growers will find here an excel lent location for
the profitable prosecution of that enterprise. Lead has been found in
several localities, and banks are already opened near Utica, and at other
points in the county, which will in some measure compensate for the
scarcity of timber. Principal towns Chillicothe, Utica, Bedford, and Dawn.
Population in 1860, 6,833.
