About Us 

The Village of Fort Recovery is located in beautiful rural Mercer County, Ohio, yet is within easy reach to many metropolitan areas in Ohio and Indiana. With a strong focus on our “quality of life”, Fort Recovery with its deep history, strong and highly awarded school system, a vibrant downtown business district, a strong industrial base, and a great deal of pride in our homes, parks and community make it the type of place that is great to live, work and raise a family.

Plan a visit to and enjoy all that Fort Recovery has to offer!

We are located...

...in the southwest corner of Mercer County near the Indiana state border. The Village of Fort Recovery was incorporated as a village in 1858 and has been the location of a continuous settlement since 1793 when General Anthony Wayne constructed the original Fort on the banks of the Wabash River.

We have a rich history!

(Editor's Note: The excerpt was taken from "The Battle on the Banks of the Wabash -- The Battle of Recovery 1794 written by Nancy Knapke)

Two very significant battles in American history took place in Fort Recovery: the first in 1791 on the banks of the Wabash when Arthur St. Clair suffered a disastrous defeat at the hands of 1,000 to 1,500 Indian warriors; the second in 1794 when Mad Anthony Wayne’s men successfully defended the fort against a relentless, two day onslaught of 2,000+ Indians who were under the command of Little Turtle and Blue Jacket. This last battle led to the signing of the Treaty of Greeneville in 1795. <<Read More>>

 

We are...

...a community with a current population of 1,430, Fort Recovery remains a small, yet progressive village with deep ties to the agricultural business community. With a school system that continually receives high ratings from the State of Ohio, a strong business community, a strong faith based community with religious diversity, a strong locally owned industrial base, and a passion about our historical significance in shaping this country --- all characteristics that lead to the excellent quality of life enjoyed by our residents.

Events such as...

...the NTP Nationals Tractor Pulls, our summer festival the Jubilee, many FREE concerts at the Van Trees Ampitheatre and a couple Crusie-In events keep Fort Recovery exciting and vibrant! Check out our Calendars page for more information about these events!
