Enjoy life in the beautiful foothills

Jackson County, Ohio is a place where you and your team will quickly feel at home, for so many reasons. We’re located in the beautiful rolling Appalachian foothills, a natural paradise where all four seasons provide plenty to do and plenty to appreciate -- especially when the fall leaves put on their beautiful annual show. If you enjoy outdoor living, you’ll never run out of recreational activities. From walking and hiking, to biking and motorcycling, to fishing and hunting, you’ll have great reasons to stay outside.

Our communities are populated by friendly people with a welcoming, neighborly spirit. Newcomers will discover that they fit in more quickly than they ever expected. Families will be impressed by our new and recently remodeled schools and first-rate healthcare resources, as well as our delightfully low cost of living and a lineup of annual festivals that includes the Apple Festival, Welsh Eisteddfod musical celebration, the Jackson County Trout Festival, and the Foothills Art Celebration. There’s a lot for the kids to do, too, from special art and academic programs to the full range of youth athletics.

Whether you choose one of our charming small towns or open land, you’ll be close to everything from quaint shops, to top-name department stores, and dining choices to match your appetite. And if you’re after a taste of big-city sports, dining, shopping, and arts, you’ll be glad to know that Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Huntington, and Charleston are all within a short drive.
