The Historic McCook House “Home of the Fighting McCooks”

Information on the McCook Family

Located in Carrollton, Ohio, the McCook House is a memorial to Ohio’s famous “Fighting McCooks.” This historic house was the home of Major Daniel McCook, who, with his nine sons and six nephews, became known as the “Fighting McCooks” because of their participation in the armed services of their country prior to and especially during the Civil War.

About 1837, Daniel McCook erected this large brick house on the southwest corner of the public square in Carrollton, and it was occupied by his family until 1848. It was acquired by the state of Ohio in November 1941 and dedicated on October 10, 1947, as a memorial to the gallant “Fighting McCooks.”

In 1981, the Carroll County Historical Society began operating the McCook House on  a lease agreement with the Ohio Historical Society.

A 2006 release of "The Fighting McCooks" in paperback & hard cover plus many other historic items are for sale on the first floor of the McCook House.
