Overview

Introduction to Bucyrus, Ohio

Bucyrus, Ohio, in Crawford county, is 58 miles N of Columbus, Ohio. The city is considered part of the Mansfield metropolitan area.

Bucyrus History

Bucyrus was founded by Samuel Norton. He arrived in this region in 1817. At that time, the area was unpopulated and occupied by a hardwood forest. The community was platted by Col. James Kilbourne, who named the town "Bucyrus." The name of the city was derived from two words - "Bu" meaning "Beautiful," and "Cyrus" in honor of the King of Persia, Cyrus the Great. During prohibition, a large number of gangsters, including Al Capone, used Bucyrus as a stopping point during their travels. Many of the underground street systems used for quick getaways exist to this day.
