Bowling Green was settled by the families of Booth, Hartman, Hollington, Mackie, Manville, Martindale, Maule, Moore, Richards, Shively, St. Johns, Stauffer, Thurstin, Tracy, and Walker. With the discovery of oil in the late 19th and early 20th century, Bowling Green experienced a boom. The wealth can still be seen in the downtown storefronts, and along Wooster Street, where many of the oldest and largest homes were built. A new county courthouse was also constructed in the 1890s, and a Neoclassical post office was erected in 1913. This period was followed by an expansion of the automobile industry. In late 1922 or early 1923, Coats Steam Car moved to the area, but eventually went out of business.
The film Bowling Green This is Your City was made in 1959 and tells a part of the history of Bowling Green as well as showing the viewer around the town.
