Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Yellowbud (sometimes called Yellow Bud) is an unincorporated community in Ross County, in the U.S. state of Ohio.

History

Yellowbud had its start as a shipping point on the Ohio and Erie Canal. The town site was platted in 1845. With the construction of the railroad, business activity shifted away from inland Yellowbud, and the town's population dwindled. A post office called Yellow Bud was established in 1846, the name was changed to Yellowbud in 1895, and the post office closed in 1903. The community takes its name from Yellowbud Creek.
