    OTHER INFORMATION

    Franklin County, named in honor of Benjamin Franklin is located in the center of the state around the city of Columbus.

    Columbus is the capital of Ohio and also the county seat of Franklin County. Most of the area's social and civil life is associated with governmental operations. Over 55 organizations conduct scientific research in industry and business in the city.

    The Ohio State University, established in 1873 is located in Columbus. The present capitol building, one of the best examples of Greek Doric architecture in the country, was completed in 1861. Although industry plays a part in the city's growth today, government is the reason for its existence.
