Lima/Allen County
As we celebrate and recognize Lima/Allen County as the place we call home...
We also celebrate who we are
We are more than a city, more than a country, we are a place thats more than the simple sum of all its people
and places. Here, our strength comes from our Midwestern work ethic and values. Our productivity, culture
and way of life are sacred gifts passed down to us from those who came before. Theyre the kinds of things all
Americans want - but few actually possess.

By now you know that Lima, Ohio is the setting for the hit Fox TV series GLEE,
but did you know that there are several area businesses and local mementos that
have been featured on the show? The Lima/Allen County Convention & Visitors
Bureau was contacted in the beginning stages of series development to send a
selection of "Lima items" to the Hollywood production department. We have since
sent many, many boxes of items, and we continue to provide materials so any more Lima-
based businesses can be featured each season. Many local establishments have already
been used in background settings including Kewpee, Northland Lanes Bowling Alley, The
Meeting Place on Market, Lock Sixteen Steakhouse, The Lima News, Lima Public Library and
104.9 The Eagles Wrecker in the Morning Radio program!
In addition, a Lima Local donated a Sue Sylvester Doll to the hit series that she had won in an
online contest. The doll has been spotted on the show, and we hope to see her many more times!
Be on the lookout while watching. You never know when a Lima business may be featured in set
design or mentioned during an episode. Here are just a few of the items weve spotted recently.
Did you happen to see them?
