When compared in general terms to the midwest, west, and north... yes.

I guess sometimes you just need to be a Southerner to understand.

I will agree somewhat with nashvols. The Appalachian mountain people are kinda unique.

I do not see any cultural difference between Wheeling WV (in a southern state) and Pittsburgh, Pa (in a northern state).

Rural Southern and southeast Ohio is strongly influenced by its neighbors West Virginia and Kentucky as it is the northwest extension and part of the central Appalachian region. Also, rural southern Ohio has had a severe lack of employment for quite awhile now unless one thinks hydraulic fracturing is good for that area. It has been mined over, industrialized, and people have come and gone (brain drain). What exactly would attract anyone to southern Ohio other than the Cincinnati region? I can't think of very many factors.

I wouldn't say southern and southeastern Ohio is part of the South, but it does a lot of Appalachian influence.

I have been in Columbus for nearly a year, but I feel more comfortable in an Appalachian environment. This southeastern Ohio hillbilly is ready to go back home!

I am from Portsmouth, Ohio and that is directly on the Ohio river, and you can almost tell what color peoples eyes are in Kentucky, across the Ohio river and we are considered southern communities. And yes, alot of people there have a southern draw when speaking.

Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia, and Missouri are Semi-Southern, but this topic is about Ohio.

The Appalachian Mountains have a culture that is an anomaly in both the North and the South.
