About Nicole

Nicole Cox is the owner of LawrenceCountyOhio.com, a trustee for the Lawrence County Museum & Historical Society, publicity chair and former newsletter editor for the Lawrence County Genealogical Society, a member of Ironton aLive, and owner of the historic Mt. Olive Iron Furnace.

In addition to being a history geek, a homeschooling mother of 4 daughters, wife to my handsome firefighter, and all of us are gradually building a sustainable homestead out in the boondocks of Decatur Township. I’m a First Responder with my husband’s fire department, a volunteer with the local chapter of the American Red Cross, and a member of the Lawrence County Community Emergency Response Team.

My first love is Jesus and I’m a member of the Arabia
Missionary Baptist Church.

I’m also passionate about our local history – it’s fun, informative and simply fascinating. Here are a few newspaper articles I’ve written to highlight our heritage:

“How Ironton was Named” – Ironton Tribune, 3/23/17

“Remembering the 78th Anniversary of the 1937 Flood” 
– Herald-Dispatch, 1/29/15

“The History of Center Furnace in Lawrence County” – Herald-Dispatch, 11/6/14

“The Hanging Rock Iron Region a Result of Industrial Revolution” – Herald-Dispatch, 9/25/14

“Historic Business Moving Forward” – Ironton Tribune, 6/3/16
