City of Kenton

History of Kenton

The city of Kenton, located on the Scioto River in Northwestern Ohio, is named after the frontiersman Simon Kenton. The Seat of Hardin County, The community was incorporated as a village in 1845 and became a city in 1886. An Agricultural trade center from early days, industry developed in the city during the latter half of the 19th century as part of the general industrializing of the United States . Since World War II, industrial growth has been spurred by community effort in order to offset declines in agricultural employment.

Physically located almost equi-distant from the larger communities of Findlay, Lima , and Marion, the Kenton Community is influenced by all three and cannot be considered a part of the "metropolitan" area of any one of them. Major highways connect Kenton with all parts of the state and considerable Fort Wayne to Columbus and Toledo to Springfield truck traffic passes through the city.

Welcome

Kenton has a lot to offer if you are looking for a community with small town values, and a vision for the future. Nestled in northwest Ohio , with a population of 8,300, Kenton has the look and feel of a rural community.

While surrounded and supported by agricultural businesses, Kenton also has a diverse group of manufacturing businesses with local, national and international influence.

Kenton is the Hardin County seat, and is at the hub of five state routes - providing easy access from almost anywhere.

For many years, the City of Kenton has enjoyed an excellent working relationship with our Township Trustees and County Commissioners. We really know how to work together to get things done!

If you are looking for a slower pace of life, Kenton is the place to be. We are surrounded by a large and diverse Amish community that provide area residents with furniture, produce, baked goods, and many other items done the good, old-fashioned way.

The Kenton area is also home to Lawrence Woods State Nature Preserve, which has the largest mature forest in the region - over 500 acres of woods! We also have many other parks and recreation areas to enjoy within a few minutes of downtown.
