Located in northwest Ohio in an area once known as The Great Black Swamp, Henry County is rich in history in many areas: agriculture, business, churches, schools and community organizations, all of which today contribute to making Henry County a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Founded on April 1, 1820, the county was named for the famous orator Patrick Henry. The dense forest was cleared and drained, leaving ground with excellent fertility for our agricultural producers. While the Miami and Erie canal was a primary source of transportation in the mid-1800’s, this mode gave way to railroads and highways which cross the county today.
Henry County's third and present courthouse was completed in 1882, and renovated in 1998. It was the county's first building to hold the honor of being placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Agriculture has left a permanent mark on Henry County as the heart of its economic growth. Today, the work ethic, inventive genius and skill of the people have led to a thriving economy based on industry, service engineering and warehousing as well as the traditional agriculture based economy.
