Governor Jeremiah Morrow portrait
Description: Jeremiah Morrow (1771-1852) was the ninth governor of Ohio, serving from 1822 to 1826. During Morrow's two terms as governor, the economy of the state grew significantly. Ohio finally emerged from the Banking Crisis of 1819 and dramatically increased its transportation infrastructure. In addition to canals, the National Road reached Ohio at this time and greatly improved Ohio's connections with the East. The state legislature also passed a law providing state support for public education during Morrow's tenure as governor. View on Ohio Memory.
