A Taste of Lima, Ohio

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT LIMA?
  1. Lima  is a city in and the county seat of Allen County, Ohio, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 38,771.

  2. The Lima area was not safe from the increased crime rate of the 1930s. In 1933, gangster John Dillinger was in the Allen County Jail, arrested for robbing the Citizens National Bank in nearby Bluffton, Ohio. Dillinger's cohorts broke him out of jail, killing Allen County Sheriff Jess Sarber in the process. The murder and jailbreak put Dillinger at the top of the FBI's ten most wanted list. His was not the only crime outfit to plague Lima during the decade. In 1936, the notorious Brady Gang robbed a local jewelry store twice.

  3. Civil rights issues had rocked Lima in the 1950s, perhaps most prominently in the efforts to desegregate the city's only public swimming pool in Schoonover Park. Civil unrest continued in the 1960s and into the 1970s.

  4. A restaurant familiar to many Lima area residents was the Susie-Q Ranchhouse restaurant; owned and operated by area businessman Gerald Fickel and his wife Ellen. The Susie-Q Ranchhouse was in operation from 1947 to 1987. In the midst of the racial tensions of the 1950s and 1960s the Susie-Q Ranchhouse was the first Lima local restaurant known to have allowed blacks into the normally white establishment.
