1. Field of Corn Marker
Inscription. Construction and development have transformed Dublin and its environs over the past three decades. In the 1960s, much of the land around Dublin was agricultural. Sam and Eulalia Frantz moved to this site in 1935 and lived here until 1963. Sam farmed the land, and Eulalia was always working with him. Both were from families that had been early settlers in the area. The Frantz family came to Dublin in 1828, and Eulalia (Bllingsley) was from a long line of farmers in Washington Township. The Frantz farm was sold in 1968. Only a few years later, in the mid 1970s, three major projects marked a turning point in the history of land use in Dublin. The completion of the northwest link in the I-270 outerbelt and the development of Muirfield Village and the Ashland Chemical Research Center set the stage for Dublinís metamorphosis from a farm village to a suburban, residential community and corporate office center.
