Yeah I noticed that living in New Hampshire. I kept having to look up the county for certain things and I had to look up the county that I lived in when I was in New Hampshire so I could apply for a gaming license here in Missouri. I just never really heard about the county.

I'm not sure about Connecticut, but the counties in New Hampshire are pretty large. The average size of an Ohio county is about 509 square miles whereas the average size of a New Hampshire county is about 935 square miles.

I actually just looked up Connecticut's average county size and it's 692.875 square miles. Now there are two counties that are under 500 square miles, but still over all, the counties in New England are much larger than those here in the Midwest. The average county size here in Missouri is 599 square miles.

The Western Reserve area is indead set up just like Conn. towns. The southern part of the state however was part of the Virginia Military District and their counties and areas are less symetrical ( more like West Virginia ). I like Cortlandgirl am from Trumbull County and anyone from the Northeast will feel very "at home" especially with the downtown areas of the townships here...the suburbs and beyond have been mostly added on since the 50's and the houses will mostly be much newer than the older courthouse square area.
