Lake County, the smallest county in Ohio, lies in the northeast corner of the state along beautiful Lake Erie. Lake County is rich in history and natural resources. We have mile long beaches, the best sunset in the state, and we are truly the heart of the nursery industry. Lake County is also home to former U.S. President, James A. Garfield. The Ohio State University Extension has been in Lake County since 1917. At the time there was only one Agricultural Agent and a Home Agent. We are now in the business of providing education to the citizens on a variety of topics including: horticulture, family and consumer sciences, nutrition, 4-H youth development and Great Lakes education.
