Congratulations You have found Dayton History Books Online! This website is dedicated to placing historical items about Dayton, Ohio online. Curt Dalton, a local historian who has written several books about Dayton's history, saw a need to make books and other educational materials about Dayton available to children and the general public. He knew that the documents had to be in a format that could easily be read and searched, to enable visitors to use the information in homework and personal projects. What better way than through the world wide web? On October 24, 2004 Dayton History Books Online opened with a list of twenty books and booklets that could be read, searched and printed out. As of February 1, 2013 there are 1043 books, booklets, videos and articles available, consisting of 16,242 pages of text, with more added every month. DHBO has now added 1,177 photos, many of which depict Dayton in the 1950s. We also celebrate having over 9.5 million hits on the site! Through the collaboration of local libraries, universities, archives, businesses and individuals, we will continue to add historical information about Dayton. Please click herefor contact information.
