I lived in Lima Ohio for 21 years and it started going down hill 5 years after I lived there and it just kept rolling down hill....Yep...SLIMA Bout sums it up.


The Legend

My hometown is Lima. We were nicknamed 'little Chicago' back in the dillinger days, and lived up to it many times... Lima has had a big history for a small town

I am from Lima Ohio, born and raised there. Moved to Tennessee 29 years ago. Lima was a thriving place to live when I grew up there. Lots of mid to high blue color jobs and industry. I was and still am a member of lu 776 plumbers and pipe fitters local. Things started going to h**l after Clinton signed the Nafta act. Lots of co. Closed down and went to China and Mexico, only good jobs there now are Ford motor engine plant and the Lima petrochemical and refinery complex.

I worked at all of them at one time or another in the eighteen years I worked at the construction trades there. Still have family there who are doing well, but we are definatley glad we left there in 1987.
