The following records were taken from the Warren County engineer's office in Lebanon, Ohio. These roads are the earliest in the county with some dating before 1803. However, this writer has included a few of the later roads. Included are the road names, the townships or towns in which they are located, with the beginning dates and the dates finished. The finish dates are when the main road was completed to its near pre- sent location including alterations and extentions. The majority of these names are the original ones. Many names were altered and parts dropped. The names are arranged in alphabetical order.
