The Village of Fredericktown, Ohio

The people of Fredericktown take great pride in their community and its history. Their community spirit is reflected along our streets, our parks and in some of the buildings and structures. One source of pride is the bandstand, built on the village square in 1987, it was actually built in one day through the efforts of civic groups, village officials, area organizations and private individuals.

An important piece of Fredericktown’s history made its way back to the community in 2007. The Webb C. Ball (1847 to 1922) was a native of Fredericktown who went on to become the first jeweler in Cleveland to use the service of the Naval Observatory in Washington.


Fredericktown is extremely proud of its 130 acres of community parks offering activities almost year ‘round. The Fredericktown Recreation District Education and Nature Center is home to the park office, and includes two miles of trails throughout 57 acres of woods, complete with wild life and scenery. There are baseball diamonds, picnic facilties and a lake for swimming. The village recently purchased the old B&O railroad path that runs from one side of town to the other. Construction is complete for the asphalt trail and is open to bicycles,tricycles, motorized wheel chairs, baby buggies, dogs on leashes and pedestrians walking and jogging to fully enjoy the outdoors.
