Description: Caption reads: "Swing foot bridge across Crooked Creek 1/2 mile above Waverly showing typical Pike Co. Log Cabin." On January 3, 1815, the Ohio government authorized the creation of Pike County. Residents named the county in honor of Zebulon Pike, an explorer and the man who discovered Pike's Peak. Located in southern Ohio, Pike County is predominantly rural, with one percent of the county's 441 square miles consisting of urban areas. The county seat is Waverly. View on Ohio Memory.
