The Histopolis Place-of-the-Day for Wednesday, August 17, 2011 is Allen County in Ohio.
"Allen County is a county located in the U.S. state of Ohio. Its population was 108,473 as of the 2000 census. It is included in the Lima, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the Lima–Van Wert–Wapakoneta Combined Statistical Area.
"It is named for Colonel John Allen, who was killed leading his men at the Battle of Frenchtown, during the War of 1812. Although it has also been claimed the county was named for Revolutionary War soldier Ethan Allen, the weight of the evidence in favor of John Allen led the General Assembly to declare that the county was named for him. The county seat is Lima."
