Falls Township

Falls Township  The 2000 census found 11,409 people in the township, 5,010 of whom lived in the unincorporated portions of the township.

Falls Township consists of two disconnected portions in the center and northeast of the county, separated by a short distance. While many Ohio townships are composed of dis-jointed pieces due to municipal annexations, separation only by other townships is very uncommon.

The majority of the city of Logan, the county seat of Hocking County, is located in the southwestern portion of Falls Township.  The population was 6,704 at the 2000 census.

Church in Falls township: Webb Chapel.

Cemeteries: Webb Chapel Cemetery, Rhodes and Huddle Cemetery, Otterbein Chapel Cemetery, Gore Cemetery.

  • Logan - Logan is the county seat of Hocking County, Ohio. Residents named the town in honor of Chief Logan of the Mingo Indian tribe. Thomas Worthington established the community in 1816.

    The discovery of immense quantities of coal led to the flourishing mining industry. Towns appeared and vanished as quickly as mines opened and closed.
