Welcome to the City of Uhrichsville, OhioThe City of Uhrichsville, Ohio, is a progressive, growing community with a population of approximately 5413 located in Tuscarawas County.
Greetings from the City of Uhrichsville!
As another new year begins there are some very exciting things happening in Uhrichsville! In our downtown area, the Dollar General Store has relocated into a newly constructed building; The Claymont Public Library will be refurbishing the front of their building with historical features; and the city is moving forward with plans to renovate a building that will be the new site of our Clay Museum. Uhrichsville officials and community leaders along with the help and guidance of the EPA/Office of Sustainable Communities are formulating plans to further improve and enhance our downtown area. In addition, many other local businesses outside of the downtown area but within our community have also improved and updated their establishments. It is a time of progress and growth in our wonderful city!
The summer season kicks off with the opening of the Uhrichsville Water Park. Stop by the Park's webpage for all up and coming events. Future recreational projects for the City of Uhrichsville include the development of Gorley Street Bottoms and a new trail. With funding provided by grants, private contributions and in-kind labor the city hopes to construct a new ball park/skate park with a basketball court, restrooms and a parking lot. In conjunction with the Village of Dennison a walking/biking trail will connect two area tourist attractions, the Dennison Depot and our Water Park.
The time for new industry and business has never been better. There are several support industries located in the immediate area with several industrial sites. With the current trend for recycling ever increasing, the aluminum reclamation industry in Uhrichsville is growing at a tremendous rate. Other support industries include plastic fabrication, hydraulic equipment, industrial rings, surface mining, trucking, grocery distribution, and lumber yards.

The Columbus and Ohio River and Corman Railroad systems run right through the City. Air travel is easily accessible with international airports in nearby Akron/Canton, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The city and county governments offer many incentives for new businesses. The Village of Dennison is located adjacent to the City of Uhrichsville. Uhrichsville and Dennison have been declared an Enterprise Zone and are in the Appalachia area that allows for special funding. The government also offers numerous loans for minority groups.
Please plan a visit to our marvelous little city! Explore our local history at the Clay Museum and at Union Cemetery. Spotlighted on a travel segment of an area TV show, the Cemetery features a Civil War Monument and many unique headstones made from clay. Enjoy a great meal at one of our area restaurants or plan a picnic in the park adjacent to the Water Park. We hope to have our new website which is being improved and updated by students at Claymont High School up and running by May 1st.
See you in Uhrichsville!
