Near Sherrodsville in Carroll County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Atwood Village originally stood at this intersection.
Although the plat never was recorded, baptismal records from the United Presbyterian Church, dated 1834, indicate that ATWOOD was a thriving village at that time.
It continued to prosper until the railroad was built in 1878, removing village business to that site, now covered by Atwood Lake.
Erected 1986 by Carroll County Historical Society.
