Welcome to the Ogle County Republican Central Committee website. What is now Ogle County was once a part of the Northwest Territory.Our modern Indians occupied Ogle County starting in the 1600’s to the 1800’s. Blackhawk was born in 1767 and died in 1838, six years after the Blackhawk War. The Legislature formed Ogle County in 1836, which was at that time a part of Jo Davies County. The name, Ogle, was suggested by Thomas Ford in memory of Captain Joseph Ogle, who distinguished himself for his courage and coolness during the Revolutionary war. Oregon was chosen to be the County Seat on January 3, 1837. Ogle County has 52 precincts. Our committee meets the last Tuesday of each month at 6:30 P.M. @ Alfano’s Restaurant in Oregon, IL. There are no meetings in November and December.
I hope you find the website informative and useful. I always welcome fresh, creative and positive ideas.
