Those of you who frequent Ebay for New London, Ohio items know that Ohio also has a second New London, a small community in Butler County, Ohio. I believe it is now called Shannon. The store kept by one H.H. Robinson is pictured on some old paper money issued at New London, Butler Co., Ohio, and is on the auction block frequently.
