New Rome, Ohio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1230 words)
New Rome was a small village on the west side of Columbus, Ohio in Franklin County, where it had occupied little more than a three-block stretch of West Broad Street (U.S. Highway 40) since its incorporation in 1947.
The New Rome police force itself was suspended by the village in 2003 when its chief resigned, shortly after the village's mayor's court was abolished by the state, and so the speed trap came to an end.
After further investigation of New Rome's history of misconduct, the Ohio Attorney General, on the recommendation of the Ohio State Auditor, concluded that it should be dissolved, though its residents had voted against dissolution in 2003.
New Rome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (981 words)

This particular New Rome served as the capital of the Roman Empire from the 4th century until the fall of the Western empire and for nearly a millennium afterwards for the Empire as it survived in the east.
