Search Carrollton Ohio

Located in Carrollton, this historic house was the home of Major Daniel McCook, who, with his nine sons and five nephews, became known as the Fighting McCooks because of their participation in the armed services of their country prior to and especially during the Civil War.

About 1837, McCook erected his large brick house on the southwest corner on the public square in Carrollton and it was occupied by his family until 1853. It was acquired by the state of Ohio in November 1941 and dedicated on October 10, 1948 as a memorial to the gallant family.
