An epic eye popping wondernote beyond the extraordinary. A stain mars this rarity in the lower left of the note. Destined to sell for a tiny fraction of her true museum value.

Bucyrus (pronounced /bjuː�ˆsaɪrəs/ )is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the county seat of Crawford County , located in northern Ohio approximately 28 miles (45 km) west of Mansfield . The population was 13,224 at the 2000 census . The city is the largest in Crawford County, and the center of the Bucyrus Micropolitan Statistical Area (as defined by the United States Census Bureau in 2003). According to James Croneis, former editor of the newspaper Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum, the name "Bucyrus" was derived from “Beautiful” and “ Cyrus the Great ", King of Persia by Col. James Kilbourne, who platted the community, making it the first community in the United States to use the name.

Bucyrus, known as the Bratwurst Capital of America, is home to the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival , which is held during the third weekend annually in August. Industries located in Bucyrus include tapered roller bearings ; highly engineered plow blades, wing shoes, and moldboard shoes; rubber hoses; and fluorescent lightings. Bucyrus is also the home of ESCO Bucyrus, as well as D. Picking and Company [1] , a family operated manufacturer of copper kettles and timpani drums , employing the same techniques since its establishment in 1874 by its founder Daniel Picking.

The Bucyrus Foundry and Manufacturing Company, a predecessor to Bucyrus International , Inc. was founded in Bucyrus in 1880. The company moved to Wisconsin in 1893.

The Lincoln Highway , later US Route 30, was routed through the city along Mansfield Street in 1913; in 1971 a modern limited access bypass was built to the north but the associated freeway links to the east and west of Bucyrus, replacing the old two-lane Lincoln Highway route, were not completed until 2005, nearly 35 years after they were first proposed.

On March 10 , 2007 , Bucyrus was featured as the town of the week on the nationally-syndicated Public Radio International program, Whad'Ya Know? .

According to the United States Census Bureau , the city has a total area of 7.3 square miles (18.9 km²), of which, 7.3 square miles (18.9 km²) of it is land and 0.14% is water.

Most of Bucyrus is served by the Bucyrus City School District , which currently includes three elementary schools, two middle schools and Bucyrus High School (9-12), but will consolidate into one junior/senior high and one elementary school after current reconstruction is completed. The western edges of the city limits are served by the Wynford Local School District located just west of the city, and the far eastern portion of the city is in the Colonel Crawford Local School District , headquartered in nearby North Robinson .

Bucyrus proper has no postsecondary educational institutions. Community colleges and regional four-year campuses of The Ohio State University serving Bucyrus commuters exist in nearby Mansfield and Marion , while two private universities in nearby Tiffin also enroll many Bucyrians.
