In 2020 Sandusky County will be 200 years old and a year of celebrations and local history themed events await you. From the Heavy forested areas in the east to the Great Black Swamp in the west hear about early pioneer life, the discovery of oil which led to the great oil boom and eventually sending a man into space. Throughout the Bicentennial year we will be bringing you these great stories and more to the cities, villages and communities of OUR Sandusky County.
