OUR HISTORY

OUR ROOTS

In 1810, Simon Kenton was served an arrest warrant for being in violation of a debtor's law. In Urbana, where he was to be held in jail, Kenton steadfastly refused to be incarcerated. So the residents, nearly all relatives and friends appointed Kenton as the acting Sheriff.

 

The family occupied the five rooms above the jail, and Kenton was allowed free roam of the town, where he was often seen, with his long staff in hand. Kenton never attempted to leave his self imposed perimeter.  

 

The grave and memorial of Simon Kenton is located at the Oakdale Cemetery, 319 Patrick Avenue, Urbana, Ohio 43078.


308 Miami Street
Urbana, Ohio 43078
