User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • Miami University - Middletown Campus, in Middletown, OH should be included in the list of colleges with over 2000 students near Eaton.
  • Fort Saint Clair is a park, not a cemetery. (It happens to be located across the road from the newer section of Mound Hill Union Cemetery.) Likewise, there is no such thing as a County Home Cemetery. Saint Clair Springs Childrens Home no longer exists.
  • Also, under Eaton's shopping centers: the name of Northedge shopping center has been changed to Five Points Centre (yes, they use that spelling). There are two more newer and larger shopping centers. They are Eaton Center located at the southwest corner of N. Barron Street (U.S. rte. 127) and Washington-Jackson Road at the northern edge of the city and Preble Crossing Shopping Center which is located diagonally across from Eaton Center on the northeast corner of the same intersection.
