It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Village of Edgerton’s webpage. In Williams County, Edgerton, is located at the extreme northwest corner of Ohio on historic U.S. Route 6. Route 6 is the oldest, longest and highest ‘old’ road in the United States. It is 3,652 miles long while reaching a peak of 11, 990 feet above sea level covering 14 states. It runs coast to coast from the waterfront in Long Beach California to the waterfront in Provincetown Massachusetts. The highway was also given the name “Grand Army of the Republic Highway” in the early 1930s. It was so named to honor Union Civil War veterans. Which leads to the introduction of Edgerton’s most famous landmark, Clem. Clem, a Union soldier, stands atop of our Civil War Monument that was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1912 and he has stood guard ever since. It was constructed by local donations and originally placed in the middle of the intersection of St Rt 49 and U.S. Route 6 facing south to keep watch. He was moved to the Town Park in July of 1972 at the request of the state due larger vehicles struggling to maneuver around the monument.
Edgerton prides itself on excellent school systems along with several top notch parks with room to grow. But more than anything the difference here is its people. The hard working, God fearing, family first, can do attitude of our citizens has made many things possible like coming together through volunteerism to donate Miller Park to the Village debt free. A high point in Edgerton High School’s rich sports history was the winning of the 1959 state basketball tournament when there were only two divisions. A true story, reminiscent of the movie “Hoosiers”, to be bookended by the 2018 Edgerton High School Football State Playoff run to the Semifinals.
Finally, our diverse industrial base provides products both nationally and internationally, our businesses consistently draw customers from a 50 mile or more radius and our farmers consistently raise crops and livestock to do their part to provide quality food all across this great land!
Come visit us or better yet consider making Edgerton your home as we strive to continue to add to the legacy of Edgerton!
