Fulton County is a county located in the U.S. state of Ohio west of Toledo. As of the 2010 census, the population was 42,698.[2] Its county seat is Wauseon.[3] The county was created in 1850 with land from Henry, Lucas, and Williams counties[4] and is named for Robert Fulton, inventor of the steamboat.[5]

Fulton County is part of the Toledo Metropolitan Area.

History

The first seat of justice in Fulton County was Ottokee, located there because of its central location in the county. A wooden courthouse was built in 1851.[6]

However, a railroad was built further south. Wauseon sprung up in 1854 when the railroad was extended to that point, and incorporated in 1859.[7] With the commercial success that the railroad brought to Wauseon, the citizens of the county voted to move the county seat to Wauseon in 1871.[6] The Fulton County Courthouse was built in 1872.[8]

Geography

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 407 square miles (1,050 km2), of which 405 square miles (1,050 km2) is land and 1.8 square miles (4.7 km2) (0.4%) is water.[11]
