A round house in Haydenville, Ohio, built in 1911, is on the National Register of Historic Places

Haydenville was one of the country’s last company towns.  The settlement, initially known as Hocking Furnace, was bought in 1853 by a businessman named Peter Hayden who re-named it — predictably — after himself.  It remained a company town until the early 1960s, when the properties were parceled off to individual owners.

This undated black and white photo shows the house back in the day.
