My 1980 Ohio almanac lists 9 Travel regions, one being Western Reserve, as mentioned, but Huron and Erie Counties are in the Firelands region, that is Northwest Ohio.

Also NW in the physiographic regions.

I've only ever heard of Firelands because of the Bowling Green branch campus and Firelands Regional Medical Center. Is it a more commonly used name or just a relic sort of like "Western Reserve" for things in and around Cleveland.

As Huron and Erie counties are placed in the Cleveland-Akron-Canton combined statistical area, this indicates that the federal government statistics analysts at the Office of Management and Budget have determined that these two counties have a "high degree" of economic and social integration with the Greater Cleveland metropolitan area. This isn't surprising given Cleveland's cultural and sports heft compared to Toledo, large economic base in western Cuyahoga County and even in the Lorain area, and the location of Cleveland Hopkins Intl. Airport on the western side of Greater Cleveland. Greater Cleveland's top-notch medical institutions also may be a part of the determination.

Greater Clevelanders certainly flock to the Sandusky area for recreational opportunities year-round (Cedar Point, indoor water parks, fishing, etc.). So it's a two-way street.

Do a Google search, and many institutions and businesses in the area have "Firelands" in their name, just as "Western Reserve" is still used in the rest of Northeast Ohio, most prominently with Case Western Reserve. The latter name probably perplexes persons living elsewhere in the U.S., who generally know nothing of the Northwest Territory let alone of the Western Reserve, as these areas no longer are considered "West" by most Americans given the nation's continental expansion.

See the map here for the cession of the Western Reserve by the State of Connecticut in 1800.

I wonder what percentage of the population of these Northeast Ohio regions know the origin of these names. Are they taught let alone emphasized in Ohio history classes locally?

Without surfing around, I don't know if they are still the same names, still at 9, etc.

The 9 travel regions listed in my 1980 Ohio Almanac are:

1. Lake Plains

2. Tecumseh

3. Miami

4. Firelands

Notes, in part:

Congress granted tracts of land in this region after the Revolutionary War as recompense to people whose homes had been burned by the British, thus the name Firelands.

5. Johnny Appleseed

6. Leatherlips (named after a Wyandot chief.)

7. Adena

8. Western Reserve.

9. Buckeye.
