Willard was called Chicago Junction prior to the 1960s because the train stop was the last one in Ohio before going onto Chicago, Illinois. The main railway running through Willard was the B&O until Seaboard bought them out in the early 1980s and is now called CSX. My Grandmother Edith Strimple taught in a one room schoolhouse in Willard during the 1920s and 1930s before relocating and teaching in the Mansfield school district. She retired from teaching in 1978.
