Brookville, Ohio is growing community west of Clayton that has 5,289 citizens (as of the 2000 census). It started as a general store, like many small suburbs of Dayton, established by Warren Estabrook in 1832. In 1874 it was incorporated with a total citizenry of 425 people. Brookville thrived due mainly to the railroad stop on the line between Dayton and Greenville. The Dayton/Greenville line was completed in 1852 causing business to spring up.
Brookville has recently built a new high school and prides themselves on the education of their youth. The Brookville Blue Devils are (8 comments)
When your looking for the perfect property for your new or expanding business, what do you look for? The perfect size and the perfect location? Definitely. Without satisfying these two factors you can't expect your business to be around very long. Is there anything else that might effect your selection? Hmmm. Let's think. How about the need for the appropriate electrical service? You have an oven that takes a 240 volt 3 phase electrical connection. Is this available in your new location? Now that you've moved in you find that there is water leaking from the ceiling down onto you (5 comments)
For those of you that have been following the Reds here is the update I promised you. They are now in second place with a record now of 55 wins and 45 losses. Just 1.5 games in back of the division leader Cardinals. Here are some great individual stats that you may want to know. Brandon Phillips, the Reds 2nd baseman, is carrying a 284 average for the year. Scot Rolen, at 3rd base, is also among the team leaders 287 average. Joey Votto, 1st baseman, has knocked the ball out of the park 25 times and is sporting a 315 average and an amazing 67 RBI's. Bronson Arroyo is (2 comments)
Incorporated in 1848 Vandalia is north of Dayton, Ohio and northeast of Clayton. It is a thriving community that encompasses the Dayton International Airport. Founded by Benjamin Wilhelm, who also became Vandalia's first mayor, at the crossroads of US Rte. 40 (the Old National Trail) and US Rte. 25 (unofficially called The Dixie Highway) making Vandalia a real Crossroads of America. This hasn't changed since the inception of the interstate system because now it is the just north of the junction of I-70 and I-75. Vandalia is the home of the Vandalia-Butler School system (ranked Excellent in the State of (0 comments)
Englewood is the home of one of the five dams that were built after the flood of 1913 that covered Dayton's downtown area. It is a thriving suburb of Dayton and Clayton's closest neighbor. The Englewood dam is an earthen dam and US route 40 (the Old National Trail) goes right over the top of it. Of course, since the construction of I-70 there isn't nearly as much traffic as there once was. Englewood has approximately 6.5 sq. miles of incorporated area and much of this is in parks. Definitely a residential community the with a population of (4 comments)
Our Neighbors Dayton, Ohio - 07/21/10 11:15 PM
Clayton's Neighbor's Yes, I live in Clayton, Ohio, but just 2.5 miles away is the City of Dayton. Dayton, Ohio has always been a hot bed of innovation and invention. Founded on April 1, 1796, seven years prior to Ohio's becoming a state in 1803. It was named after Captain Jonathan Dayton who owned the land where the city was founded. Dayton is a city of approximately 155,000 people and accounts for most of my business. Like most cities today Dayton's population has decreased mainly due to the move to the suburbs.

Do I Need a Home Inspector? - 07/19/10 02:17 PM
Why is it that people still don't think they need a home inspection. Oh, I understand that in some cases this is a macho thing for the males involved in the transaction (sorry guys, women more freely admit a lack of knowledge than men do). But unless your a qualified/certified home inspector you are doing yourself an injustice not getting a home inspection. Ok, so you've had years of experience in building homes, just ask yourself the following question: Is your education general or specific? Are you a carpenter that knows plumbing? Maybe your an electrician that knows about pouring foundations? (5 comments)
Sports in Dayton - 07/08/10 01:24 PM
For those of you that might be fans of the Reds I would like to update their stats for you. They are still in first place with a record now of 49 wins and 37 losses. A full 3 games ahead of the second place Cardinals. Some great individual stats have to start with Brandon Phillips, the Reds 2nd baseman, who is carrying a 307 average for the year. Scot Rolen, at 3rd base, isn't far behind with a 296 average. Joey Votto, 1st baseman, has knocked the ball out of the park 21 times so far this year. Bronson Arroyo (8 comments)
I've had my share of interesting homes lately. They just seem to get better as time goes on. I had one yesterday that seemed to a typical special home. The house was 91 years old and of structural brick. That in itself makes it different considering when it was constructed. As I walked around the building I did notice more and more that peaked my interest. Its no secret that I love old homes and I am fascinated with the history of building in the US, but this one really got to me. It is within yards of a neighborhood (8 comments)
The Pledge of Allegiance by Red Skelton - Happy 4th of July to You All! - 07/03/10 01:26 PM
This is heart warming and honest. Love it. Thanks for finding and posting. Via Wanda Kubat-Nerdin (Prado Real Estate, St. George, UT 435.632.9374): Mr. Skelton was an amazing comedian in his own right but there were times when he would become solemn, especially when he wanted to express something of great importance. This is one of those times and wanted to share this with all of you for this 4th of July weekend. This is a reminder of why we celebrate this great day in honor of those who fought and continue to fight for our freedoms. It still chokes me up when (6 comments)
