Greetings from the City of Uhrichsville!

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 has refurbished the front of their building with historical features; the city is moving forward with plans to renovate a building that will be the new site of the Uhrichsville Museum of Clay Industry and Folk Art; and an Outdoor/Sports Clothing and Gear shop will be opening in the new future. 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. Please visit the Park's Web Site for all up and coming events. A new walking/biking trail connects two area tourist attractions - our Water Park and the Dennison Depot. Explore our local history at the Uhrichsville Museum of Clay, Industry and Folk Art and at Union Cemetery. The Union Cemetery was spotlighted on a travel segment of a regional TV show. The Cemetery features a Civil War Monument and many unique headstones made from clay. Future recreational projects for the city of Uhrichsville include the development of Gorley Street Bottoms. 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.
