Toledo goes by nicknames like Glass City, Home of the Mud Hens, Frog Town, the Black Swamp and the second biggest city in Michigan.
Toledo was the territory disputed in the 'Great Toledo War' with Michigan. [see Michigan]
At the time of its founding, Michigan Territory claimed its southern boundary was a line due east from the bottom of Lake Michigan, which went just south of the original town. Today the line is Dorr Street; north south roads jog about 300 feet because land to the north was surveyed from Michigan and land to the south was surveyed from Ohio.
This dispute provoked the Great Toledo War, as the Territorial militia mobilized and Ohio officials snuck in from Perrysburg in the middle of the night to formally organize Lucas County at its new seat. Eventually Congress decided in favor of Ohio (proving that Territories have zero votes in Congress). As consolation Michigan received the upper peninsula. Feeling a bit remote from the rest of Ohio, Toledoans sometimes wish they were in the second biggest city in Michigan; it is more connected to Detroit than to Ohio.
In addition to being the home of the Mud Hens, Toledo is know as the" Walleye capital of the world". It is an international port of call within the St Lawrence Seaway system. It is also the birthplace of the Jeep (the world's first ORV), and formerly highly popular as a place for underage residents of Michigan to visit and purchase 3/2 beer.
