Agriculture and Small-Town Pride
Take a step back from the big-city hustle and bustle into the quiet rural village of Fredericktown, where agriculture is a booming industry and friendly neighbors take pride in their thriving small-town community. Though it’s located just 50 minutes outside of Columbus, Fredericktown is a vastly different world, with its own prosperous economy, growing business district, and rich neighborhood attractions.
Close-Knit Community & Bountiful Recreation
Citizens of Fredericktown take pride in their bustling little village, and it’s not hard to see why. Rich history dating back to the early 1800’s, a strong economy, and a connected community of caring friends and neighbors devoted to the well-being of the town give Fredericktown the welcoming atmosphere of a large family. Community pride can be experienced throughout the town, from the Bandstand — built 1987 on the village square — to the official FFA Jacket, which originated in Fredericktown and is now used throughout the nation. There’s also the Fredericktown Historical Society Museum, which displays the community’s heritage in a preserved historic building dating back to 1828, and Ball’s Clock, which stood for more than 100 years in Cleveland. And there is the strong, growing, and developing economy of Fredericktown, which encompasses both small and large industries, and community development groups devoted to the promotion of new and expanding business.
Amazing Outdoor Recreation
It’s not hard to get outside and enjoy sunny days and beautiful scenery in Fredericktown! The village offers over 130 acres of preserved and developed community parkland offering amenities such as walking and biking trails, softball and baseball fields, tennis and basketball courts, picnic areas, and a 9-hole golf course. The Fredericktown Recreation District Education and Nature Center also offers trails through 57 acres of woods and a lake perfect for swimming. The Kokosing River offers fishing, boating, and camping, while Knox Lake is a favorite fishing spot for its record size bass.
Additionally, the Kokosing Reservoir offers even more opportunities for fishing, boating, and camping. The Parks and Recreation department also offers community activities and programs throughout the year.
