OSTRANDER, OHIO VILLAGE RECORDS

Ostrander, Ohio may have been platted in 1852, but it was not incorporated for another 23 years.  The citizens of  Ostrander petitioned the Delaware County Commissioner to be recognized as a Village.  The County Commissioner granted this request on May 18, 1875.

Even then, it took the citizens of Ostrander until April 5, 1876 to conduct the first council meeting.  Present at the meeting were:  D.G. Cratty, Mayor; W.C. Winget, Treasurer; D.C. Fay, Clerk; and Council Members:  T. Maugans, J.H. Fields, Samuel Stricklin, G.S. Carr, F.W. Brown, and J.B. Robers.
