Come Live in Mount Gilead

Come Live in Mount Gilead

 
Formed from parts of Richland, KnoxMarion and Delaware Counties, Mt. Gilead is the County Seat of Morrow County and the center of population of Ohio.  Settlement began in the Village of Mount Gilead in 1817 when it was listed under the name Whetstone, although it was generally called Youngstown.  The State Legislature changed the name to Mt. Gilead in 1832 and in 1839, the Village became incorporated.  The population was 3,660 at the 2010 census.
 
Wander around the Village and see charming locally-owned shops, restaurants and located in the center of the Village is Morrow County's historic World War I Victory Memorial Shaft, which is unique to the United States.  Mt. Gilead offers many of the services you get in the big city, but without the big city hassles.
 
The Morrow County Fairgrounds, conveniently located in Mount Gilead, hosts many special events such as the County Fair, Antique Tractor Show, Farm Days, Rod-N-Tiques (a hot rod show), 4th of July Celebration and the World's Largest Gourd Show.
 
Mount Gilead State Park offers camping, fishing, boating, hiking and picnicking.  More than three miles of trails provide opportunities for exercise, nature study and wildlife observation.  A volleyball court, shuffleboard court, horseshoe pits and playground may be enjoyed by visitors in day-use areas of the park.  The park hosts special events year-round and provides summer nature programs and a nature center.  The 200-seat amphitheater may be rented for a variety of outdoor functions.  The picturesque gazebo may also be rented for special occasions.  Morrow County is also located within a short distance of many other recreational areas such as the Delaware Wildlife Area, Delaware State Park, Mohican State Park and Clear Fork Reservoir.
