Introduction to Macedonia, Ohio
The history of Macedonia dates back to the early 1800s when Henry Woods discovered a stream and named it Indian Run. Abraham Cranner bought property near Indian Run and built a log house in 1824. This was the first home built in the new settlement of Macedonia, which was officially incorporated in 1971. Two theories exist for how the town was naemd. One suggests that it was named for Macedon, New York, while the other indicates that it may have been named for the country in southern Europe.
