On our drive to Summit County recently, we passed by this Ohio Historical Marker for the Boston Township Hall designed by John Eisenmann. Located on Main Street in Peninsula, Ohio, it marks this school building designed by Eisenmann; designed to consolidate two one-room school houses when the Peninsula and Boston Township Boards of Education merged in 1919. An attendee of Case School of Applied Science, Eisenmann was the first professor of civil engineering to write Cleveland’s first building code.

He was paid $140 for his design of the school building which cost $4000 to construct. Later in life, he then designed the Ohio Flag which was adopted in 1902. Then in 1915, he was a major advocate for the construction of the Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial located in South Bass Island.

Turns out there is an entire site dedicated to the 1447 historical markers located around the state of Ohio.  Remarkable Ohio not only lists all the markers in details, but it also tell how one can go about getting a Historical Marker issued.
