Washington Township - Warren County, Ohio
Ohio History Connection
Eight earthwork complexes in Ohio are in the process of being nominated to the World Heritage List. Our local Ft. Ancient State Park is one of them. The Ohio History Connection (formally the Ohio Historical Society) has decided to seek a grant to purchase 56 acres of King’s Domain, along the north side of State Route 350, to act as a buffer. The rationale is here, and the attached PDF shows this proposed purchase. 8/26/2019

Fire Department Request
Residents, please be aware of height clearance requirements needed for a fire truck to access your driveway. If you have low overhanging branches, it would be best to remove them to allow easy access to your residence by the fire department. Thank you!
“Historic Warren County”
The Heritage Advisory Council has compiled an updated story of our region. This colorful, limited edition history is available from member agencies for $35. The history may be purchased at the Mary L. Cook Public Library in Mason, Ohio.
Slow Moving Vehicles and Bike Races
Residents are urged to use caution when our farmers are on the roadways. They have to move about, and will occasionally slow down traffic; a bit of patience is appreciated! There will be bike races throughout the summer on our roadways; please be patient and use caution! Thank you very much!

Robberies in Township
There have been several robberies this past year in our township and in neighboring areas. Citizens are advised to lock homes vehicles and storage buildings, and keep outside lighting on at night. Please be aware of any unusual or suspicious behavior in your neighborhood, and report it to the Warren County Sheriff at 513-695-1289. Also if you come across someone selling tools and equipment very cheaply, these might be stolen goods. Report this as well. Thank you!
It is also advised to check with your insurance companies to make sure that all your tools and equipment are properly covered in the event of a theft.
