Tadmor, OH - (1851 - 1922 canal & railroad town abandoned & later flooded)

Classification: ghost town

Location: Bethel Township, Miami County & City Of Vandalia, Montgomery County - On hiking trails in Taylorsville Metropark with parking & access on both the north & south side of the park

It's a long hike from either direction on trails off of the county service road & bike path. Tadmor was a small village that became a transportation hub as it sat at important crossroads next to the Miami-Erie Canal. It had two train stations. One of them was on the Cincinnati, Hamilton, & Dayton Railroad & another on the Dayton & Michigan Railroad. The post office went by the name Tadmer from 1867 - 1884, then Tadmor from 1884 - 1917. Most of the town's residents moved north when the National Road (US 40) was built nearby a few years before the town flooded. There are several old cemeteries in the area where the citizens of Tadmor were buried & some remnants of the town on the hiking trails in Taylorsville Metropark.
