AAA Editor Notes
Pithole City, s. on SR 227, then 2.5 mi. e./n.e. to 14118 Pithole Rd., was a flourishing settlement during the oil boom of the mid-1860s, but it only lasted a little more than a year. In September 1865 the population was 15,000, and the town had 57 hotels, a post office and a daily newspaper; by December the following year, the population had dwindled to less than 2,000. Today little remains of the vanished town except for cellar holes in a hillside meadow.

Visitors can walk the grassy paths that were once streets; interpretive signs are available.
