Initial[edit]

A few people are interested in adding more information to the Urbana, Ohio page - from local long term establishments to local individuals that have made an impact on many lives.

These include, Mr. Mike Simpson, Crabill's Hamburgers, et. al.

So far, all changes are reverted, and I can continually recreate these articles and add them back because they are of relevance to Urbana, Ohio until a reason can be given to me why they should not be on a page about Urbana, Ohio.

History[edit]

The history of this place is limited to a lynch-mob murder of a black man in 1897. Has nothing happened since? (talk) 19:17, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

There is no written proof that Urbana was named after a town in Virginia. In fact as an active member of our county historical society I have never read that in all of the first hand accounts we have in our museum. The lynch mob murder did happen but unfairly represents the rich history of Urbana's present and former residents. I was outraged to see that the highlighted story. I will submit to you in the near future for your consideration a more accurate account of our rich history.
