Chillicothe and Ross County are blessed with abundant historical and recreational opportunities for people of all ages. We are the heart of Ohio’s first World Heritage site – the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks and have five sites within our county limits. We boast one of the best small-town museums in the nation that recently opened a $1 million addition. There are five state parks within a 30-minute drive of the city. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy biking and hiking paths, including atop our levee alongside the Scioto River. We have the premier outdoor drama in the United States in “Tecumseh!” and the Chillicothe Paints baseball team – three-time champions of the Prospect League, the country’s top collegiate wooden bat league. And there’s much, much more. We hope you’ll join us and enjoy our southern Ohio hospitality.
