Preble County has you covered!

Located in southwest Ohio along Interstate 70 with easy access to Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis, big city attractions aren't far away, either. With so much to do in and around Preble County, there's something for everyone!


Upcoming events...

Local food movement...

If there's one thing Preble County knows (other than covered bridges), it's agriculture. Preble Roots is a new movement aimed at providing a simple identification for food items (and other items) grown or produced in Preble County. It's just getting started, and local food producers can take advantage of this opportunity to be included in a new directory  that'll highlight what Preble County has to offer! Producers of food, fiber and arts (i.e. quilts, soaps, pastas, yarn, etc.) can get information below on the Preble Roots movement!
