Noble County’s First Woman Sheriff, Rosa Clucus

To recognize the 100th anniversary of the women’s right to vote, the museum will have a display honoring the first woman sheriff of Noble County, Rosa Clucus, who held the office from 1938 to 1940.

Sheriff Clucus was appointed to the office after her husband, Clinton Clucus had a heart attack during the first year of his second term.

The museum and office are located in the old Jail/Jailers residence on the square in Caldwell, Ohio at 419 West Street.
