Mayor's Welcome

Hello and welcome to the City of Chillicothe, Ohio’s First Capital! Chillicothe is home to the Hopewell Culture National Historic Park, a vibrant downtown, destination mountain bike trails, the Chillicothe Paints baseball team, Majestic Theater, the Tecumseh! Outdoor Drama and so much more. A short drive from Columbus, Athens, Dayton and even Cincinnati, Chillicothe is a great place for a daytrip or weekend getaway, and once you’ve visited once or twice you may find yourself considering a permanent move. I myself moved to Chillicothe in 2006 for a job opportunity and love this community.

In addition to tourism and recreation opportunities our school system offers excellent educational opportunity and state of the art facilities, and job opportunities across the community are diverse and growing. Chillicothe is home to the nationally ranked Adena Regional Medical Center, Kenworth Truck Company, whose Chillicothe facility builds over 150 trucks per day, and Pixelle Specialty Solutions, a specialty paper company.

Whether you’re in town for the day or considering a permanent move I’m sure you’ll enjoy our dining options, which are growing at a rapid pace. And Chillicothe is a regional destination if shopping is on your agenda. If you can’t find the answer that you’re looking for on this site, please never hesitate to call my office or stop in to see me; I’m committed to making sure that you enjoy your time in Chillicothe as much as I do!

Regardless if you’re here for business or pleasure, I hope you’ll take a moment to absorb the uncommon beauty of our community and that you’ll enjoy your stay.
