On February 10. 1899, a United States Weather Bureau Station
operated by Steve Eveland, in the small hamlet of Milligan, Ohio,
now part of McLuney, reported a temperature of 39 degrees
below zero. To date, this is the lowest temperature officially
recorded in Ohio. Milligan's location in the flat valley of the
Moxahala Creek made it susceptible to cold air masses drained
from surrounding elevations. The record-breaking temperature
in Milligan was recorded in the midst of a severe cold spell
throughout Ohio that began on February 8 and ended on February
15, 1899 when temperatures reached a few degrees above zero.
While Milligan can no longer be found on a map, it has been
known as the coldest spot in Ohio for over one hundred years.
