Search Milan Ohio

Milan is located in northern Ohio and straddles the Erie County/Huron County line about 50 miles west-southwest of Cleveland and 10 miles southeast of Sandusky on the banks of the Huron River. The town is the birthplace of inventor extraordinaire Thomas Edison. The Edison Birthplace Museum has been established in his honor.

A three-mile-long canal built in 1839 linked Milan with the Huron River, and an economic boom followed. Even though Milan was landlocked, it became the second largest inland wheat port in the world.

"Settlers Day", held the third weekend in October at the Milan Historical Museum, features demonstrations, re-enactments, horse-drawn carriage rides, period music and working craftpersons. Visitors should also plan for a walk-through of the 22-acre Galpin Wildlife Preserve.

Other local attractions include the Milan Historical Museum.
