Do you see the little cemetery to the east, high on the west bank of the Auglaize? It's all that remains of Hartford, thriving town in the 1830's with, it was expected, a bright future, since the new Miami and Erie Canal would one day be serving it- - it was hoped. But the canal missed Hartford by two miles to the west, and after 1845, the buildings and streets gradually disappeared.
