Location of Pickrelltown, Ohio

Pickrelltown is an unincorporated community located at the intersection of two roads (County Roads 28 and 29) in northern Monroe Township, Logan County, Ohio, United States. It has also been known as Frogtown, and its current name has also been spelled Pickereltown, Pickeretown, and Pickreltown.[1] The community consists of a few homes and a small church, plus a historic monument (a memorial to fallen soldiers from the community) placed in the middle of the intersection. The monument was destroyed in April 2000[2], although it has since been replaced.
