Description: Southernmost point in Ohio, located in Lawrence County, ca. 1940. On December 21, 1815, the Ohio government authorized the creation of Lawrence County, named by residents in honor of James Lawrence, a hero of the War of 1812. Located in southeastern Ohio, the county’s southern border lies along the Ohio River, and Lawrence County is Ohio’s southernmost county. It is predominantly rural, with three percent of the county’s 455 square miles consisting of urban areas. The southernmost point is found along the river about one mile east of the village of South Point. View on Ohio Memory.
