Henpeck Ohio ghost town Warren County history travel abandoned

Henpeck, OH (Wellman) – (early 1800s – late 1800s pioneer town abandoned for unknown reasons)

Classification: ghost town

Location: Massie Township, Warren County – On Pioneer Village Rd in Caesar Creek State Park

It was settled in 1808 by Quaker immigrants Levi & Elizabeth Lukens. Their cabin along with some other buildings from the original town are restored & in what is now called Caesars Creek Pioneer Village. Henpeck was a small town with about 13 buildings in the 1891 Warren County atlas, but it hasn’t been found on any later maps. The community of Wellman started up just a mile away around the same time Henpeck was abandoned. The residents may have moved to get away from areas that flooded frequently before construction of Caesar Creek Lake.
