The City of Girard is the County Seat of Crawford County, at the intersection of Highways 7 and 47. Downtown Girard is built around a traditional and historic courthouse square.
The community was founded in February 1868 when Dr. Charles Strong selected the geographic center of Girard as the place to shoot a deer and proclaim that spot to be designated as the new town, named after his hometown in Pennsylvania.
Girard is the location of multiple National Registered Historic Places!
