PHOTOHIO is a keyword searchable repository of thousands of photos, texts and documents relating to Ohio's history. From this site you can search or browse the collections of Ohio newspaper photo archives, yearbooks, local historical publications and more.

Photohio contains irreplaceable collections of newspaper photo archives; yearbooks; local historical publications and genealogical records; historical and biographical sketches available nowhere else on the Internet.

Original funding in 2000 for Photohio was supplied by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant and the Grandview Heights Public Library.  Project funding has continued with support from Central Library Consortium members and several community organizations.
