Richland Township Home

Located on the eastern side of Fairfield County Ohio, Richland Township is the smallest of the 13 townships in the County.  Just 24 sections, 4 sections wide (east to west) and 6 sections from north to south, it is named for its fertile soils.  Founded in 1805, history tells us that Zane’s Trace passed through Rushville, originally called Clintontown and West Rushville on its way through the early Ohio County.  The Trace helped to establish the early farm trade of the township as well as general commerce.  With its rich history and beautiful countryside, Richland Township is a great place to discover.
