Ohio's Western Reserve, where the Central Plains, the Great Lakes, and the Appalachian Mountains meet, is a historically defined region stretching from the Pennsylvania border west to the Lake Erie Islands. It was once called "New Connecticut," and its residents have worked to preserve the village greens and the distinctive, historic buildings that surround them. Today, visitors are often struck by the area's unmistakable New England character.
