Toledo is a city in Lucas County on the northern border of Ohio and the western end of Lake Erie. In the 2002 census, the city had a population of 309,106, which is down as from the 2000 census, in which the city had a total population of 313,619. Toledo is known as the Glass City because of its long history of innovation in all aspects of the glass industry: windows, bottles, windshields, and construction materials. The world-renowned Jeep has been manufactured in Toledo since 1941.
A skirmish between Ohio and Michigan, called the Toledo War (1835-1836), was once fought over a badly-surveyed strip of land containing the city. Militias from both states were sent but never engaged. The only casualty of the Toledo War was Michigan sheriff Joseph Wood, who was stabbed in the thigh by Two Stickney, the youngest son of Major Stickney in the Ohio militia, as he, his father, and his older brother One Stickney were being taken to jail. (See Toledo Strip.)
The city sits astride the Maumee River at the southern end of Maumee Bay, and north of what was formerly the Great Black Swamp, giving rise to another nickname, Frog Town. Toledo was founded in 1833, when the nieghboring, and competing towns of Port Lawrence and Vistula agreed to set aside their differences and unite to take advantage of a proposed canal to bypass rapids on the Maumee. An important ecological site, a sandy oak savanna called the Oak Openings region, lies just west.
Culturally, the greatest institution is the Toledo Museum of Art (http://www.toledomuseum.org), an internationally-acclaimed museum with a modest, but very complete collection housed in a Greek revival building. The Toledo Zoo (http://www.toledozoo.org) was the first zoo to feature a hippoquarium-style exhibit.
The Old West End is a historic neighborhood of Victorian houses recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
There is also a major university, The University of Toledo, the Medical College of Ohio, a major seaport, and a AAA minor league baseball team called the Toledo Mud Hens.
It is the county seat of Lucas County.
On January 15, 1936 the first building to be completely covered in glass was completed in Toledo. It was a building for the Owens-Illinois Glass Company and marked a milestone in architectural design that eventually led to the International style of architecture.
