Dublin, Ohio, USA Historic Walking Tour

Welcome to the Dublin, Ohio, USA Historic Walking Tour! Come travel back in time to learn about the location of the first settlers to the area. In 1808, John Sells brought his family to the region, and by 1810 he had begun to survey lots for the new village with his partner, an Irish gentleman named John Shields. According to historians, Shields is responsible for naming the town after his birthplace: "If I have the honor conferred upon me to name your village, with the brightness of the morn, and the beaming of the sun on the hills and dales surrounding this beautiful valley, it would give me great pleasure to name your new town after my birthplace, Dublin, Ireland."
