Team Building in Ohio
Ohio was the first and eastern-most state admitted to the Union under the Northwest Ordinance. Ohio is an Iroquois word meaning "great water." The name refers to the Ohio River that forms its southern border. Ohio claims the first chewing gum in 1869, and the first hot dog in 1900.

Ohio, the Buckeye State, received its nickname because of the many buckeye trees that once covered its hills and plains. The name itself is of native origin. Because the markings on the nut resembled the eye of a buck, the Indians called it "hetuck" or "buckeye." But there may be another reason. William Henry Harrison, a Virginia-born Ohioan and military hero, was a candidate for the White House, but his opponents often commented not too kindly that he was better suited to sit in a log cabin and drink hard cider. Making a positive reference, they dubbed him "the log cabin candidate," and chose as his campaign emblem a log cabin made of buckeye timbers, with a long string of buckeyes decorating its walls. The campaigns were successful. "Old Tippecanoe," as Harrison was often called, beat President Martin Van Buren, and thereafter the buckeye was closely associated with the state of Ohio.
Other interesting Ohio facts:
The Y Bridge in Zanesville was first built in 1814 to span the confluence of the Licking and Muskingum Rivers. The current bridge is the fifth construction at the same location. "Ripley's Believe It or Not" proclaimed it the only bridge in the world which you can cross and still be on the same side of the river.
