Part of settling into a new house so that it feels like 'home' is getting to know the neighbors. Having that community connection helps establish a feeling of permanence and belonging. Here are some ideas for breaking the ice when you're the new kid on the block.

 

1. The direct approach … sort of

If you're an extrovert, then walking up to a neighbor's home to say hello will be easy. If you're on the shyer end of the scale, you can build up to it. Wave when driving by or checking the mail; a friendly "Hi" as you walk by with the dog or taking the kiddos to school lets you interact without being committed to stick around. When you're ready, you can hang out for a chat. Word of caution, avoid dinner hours when heading over to knock on the door.  

 

2. Old school … with pen and paper

With the advent of the technological age, old fashioned hand written notes have gone by the wayside, and as such, are a welcome surprise when received. A small personalized note left in the mailbox or on the front door can make a big impression—and lay the groundwork to meet for coffee, or something similar.

 

3. Meet at the bus stop

Go with your kids to the bus stop the first few days (or weeks). It'll give you a chance to meet the neighborhood kids your child is likely to end up playing with in the future, and get you on a level playing field with the parents. When you have kids 'in common,' conversation easily flows from there.

 

4. Trust your dog

Animals are often good judges of character, and great conversation starters. Go for a walk, find the local dog park, just get out with Fido and before you know it, the opportunities to meet the local folks will come to you! Just remember to carry supplies to clean up any accidents along the way. Nobody likes a party pooper.

 

5. Groups and clubs are all the rage

Knitting, cooking, reading . . . there are all kinds of reasons that people join clubs. At the heart of them all is the socialization that comes from them. These are a great way for you to meet your neighbors and slowly acclimate. You can start off as a quiet observer if need be, then involve yourself more as you get comfortable. Before you know it, you'll be taking a turn at hosting the group! Tea party, anybody?

People often ask us what defines the culture of Logan County and why Indian Lake is such a great place to live. The truth is, it's all about the people. 

 

Living in a place as beautiful as Ohio, nestled next to Indian Lake and surrounded by state parks and farmlands; this is what it means to live in the American Midwest.  But when it comes right down to it, the thing that makes Indian Lake one of the best places to live, is that our people still maintain the same small town charm that has always been a staple of rural life.  There is a kindness and sense of community rarely found in other parts of the country.  It's a remnant of the early settler days when central Ohio was booming with early industry and advanced agriculture. 

 

We have a lot of fast food restaurants and chain department stores today, just like every other town in the USA.  But we also have a wealth of small businesses and local establishments that cater to locals and visitors alike.  Living in Logan County means being a part of the group that calls this place home. Saying hello to the neighbor you see at the grocery store and knowing the parents of your kids' friends.  These are the real deal purpose of community and the way life is meant to be lived.

 

The neighborhoods and houses in Bellefontaine or Russells Point are comprised of a nice mix of families, some who have lived in these parts for generations and others who have relocated here to find something fresh and welcoming for their families.  We encourage you to browse the homes of Bellefontaine and greater Logan County to see what we mean by small town charm and a sense of community.

 

Living in America's Heartland means a deep appreciation for the people and culture that makes small town life feel like home.

 

You're always welcome in Logan County!

There's something fascinating and transporting about the ancient history of the county we call home. Logan County has been home to tribes of Native Americans for thousands of years and their artifacts are still being dug up from the nutrient-rich soil of Logan County. Mastodon teeth and arrowheads as old as 10,000 BC have been unearthed in the area, a reminder that all of Logan County was once covered in thick glacial ice, which later melted and flowed south to help form the Hocking Hills and much of the Appalachian basin.

 

The history of Logan County is full of fascinating stories of native indians, the underground railroad, and aggricultural development. During the last few centuries when European settlers were immigrating to the area, the lands were home to tribes such as the Miami, Wyandot, Delaware, Ottawa, Mingo, Seneca, and Cherokee Indians as well as the very prominent Shawnee Nation.  When white settlers made their homes in the 1760s and 1770s, these natives were forced south into neighboring counties.

 

The natives clashed with early Americans in several famous battles before the territory was eventually fully settled as the State of Ohio in 1822. A large number of geographical names in the area come from these Indian tribes including their Chiefs, villages, and names for rivers and lakes.

 

Despite the mournful history of the clash between Native Americans and European settlers, today the Shawnee Nation has amassed a considerable wealth that has allowed them to consider investing several million dollars in land in Logan County.

 

A favorite pastime of locals in Logan County is to dig for arrowheads and other fossil remnants of this bygone era. There are great caves and even burial mounds throughout Ohio that still stand as a testament to a time long before our community and current residents but the history is a rich part of living in Logan County.
