City of Kenton The Key to Your Future



Kenton, Ohio 43326

Welcome to the City of Kenton!

Kenton has a lot to offer if you are looking for a community with small town values, and a vision for the future. Nestled in northwest Ohio, with a population of 8,300, Kenton has the look and feel of a rural community.

While surrounded and supported by agricultural businesses, Kenton also has a diverse group of manufacturing businesses with local, national and international influence.

Kenton is the Hardin County seat, and is at the hub of five state routes - providing easy access from almost anywhere. For many years, the City of Kenton has enjoyed an excellent working relationship with our Township Trustees and County Commissioners. We really know how to work together to get things done!

If you are looking for a slower pace of life, Kenton is the place to be. We are surrounded by a large and diverse Amish community that provide area residents with furniture, produce, baked goods, and many other items done the good, old-fashioned way.

The Kenton area is also home to Lawrence Woods State Nature Preserve, which has the largest mature forest in the region - over 500 acres of woods! We also have many other parks and recreation areas to enjoy within a few minutes of downtown

If quality of life is important to you, we welcome you to come and share it with us - at its best - in Kenton, Ohio.
