A tidbit of history on Galion, Ohio.

The village of Galion is in Crawford county, Ohio  It was settled by one family about the year 1817 with a few more settlers to come in the next few years.  Near the time of the 1850’s it became a small town or village, which I believe at this time it was named.  In later years after it was founded, it became a railroad hub.  Even today, the population boasts no more than a few thousand or less, so today it still remains a small village.
