Buy Local or By River: Furnishing Early Ohio by Andrew Richmond – Speakers Bureau Presentation

Buy Local or By River: Furnishing Early Ohio

Contrary to popular beliefs, the Ohio frontier was not a remote backwoods devoid of style.  Trade via the rivers and lakes, and later, the canals, provided easy access to all manner of goods produced in eastern urban centers and in Europe.  While early Ohioans did import great quantities of goods, they also produced equally great quantities of goods as well.  Using both documentary evidence and surviving objects, we’ll examine the wide range of goods both made and used in on the Ohio frontier, and how trade networks and consumer choice played key roles in the furnishing of frontier homes.
