The [Benton] Ledger and Scrapbook is a single item used as both a ledger and a scrapbook. The name Benton appears at the top of pages of the ledger, which may be the location of the business, probably a general store in Benton, Holmes County, Ohio. The ledger lists goods sold and names of customers, while the newspapers include poems, short stories, marriages, obituaries, and more.
