Integrity....Fairness....Relationships....Helping Others....Self-Reliance

These are the core values the Lehman (pronounced Layman) family has operated with since 1955 when Jay Lehman opened the store in Kidron, Ohio.  Here is their story.

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

Lehman's has been a tremendous success selling mainly non-electrical products, beginning with serving the Amish community.  Inevitably, when there is a disaster or fuel crisis in Ohio, regionally, or nationally, Lehman's makes the news because of overwhelming demand for products to help in the emergency situations.

During this interview with Jay's son, President and Co-Owner Galen Lehman. listeners will hear:

  • why Jay Lehman created this business
  • how the business specialized in hard-to-find products
  • that the family spent several years living in Kenya, Africa, and how that helped them with their business when they returned to Ohio
  • expanding into the catalog, and then internet sales
  • how they expanded into manufacturing their own products
  • the different sections of the store, and how they serve different interests
  • full service of products, how-to books, and knowledgeable team members
  • leaving a legacy of preserving a self-reliant way of life

To learn more about this unique store go to Lehman's website.

In episode 6, the show took a different approach, in that we interviewed an expert about a historical figure in Ohio history.  I interviewed Laura Bullock, Volunteer Director at the Sherman House and Museum in Lancaster, Ohio.  The Sherman House and Museum is part of the Fairfield County Heritage Society.  This historical house was home for the prestigious Sherman family.

Of the 11 children who lived in this house, General William Tecumseh Sherman and Senator John Sherman were the two most well-known historical figures.

Some of the most well-known events in their lives:

Some resources to learn more about the Sherman brothers:

For information on the Civil War Symposium referenced by Laura in the interview, click here.  Please note this event takes place September 27 and September 28.

To contact the museum, call 740-687-5891.

As always, thank you for listening to the show.  Please take the time to rate the show on Itunes or Sticher and leave comments.
