Welcome


Welcome to the Village of Carroll's Web Site!
 

Founded in 1829 at the junction of the Ohio-Erie and Lancaster Lateral Canals, Carroll was the only place in Fairfield County where two canals intersected. The village was named after Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence at that time, and was incorporated in 1858.

 

Carroll was a booming place during the canal’s heyday of the 1830’s to 1880’s and today we enjoy a quiet atmosphere and friendly residents.

 

Located along US Hwy 33, Carroll offers easy access to Lancaster and Columbus. Our civic groups are always working to make this a better community and businesses provide for the needs of residents, with opportunities for new businesses available. Our location is perfect for those who want to work in or visit the metropolitan areas of Columbus while living in and enjoying the amenities of a small town.
 

Carroll is a pleasant village with much to offer. We invite you to stop in anytime!

LOOKING BACK AT CARROLL
PART I
This article was written and contributed by Mrs. Joseph Gundy. (Also known as Jessie E. Wilson, a former resident of Carroll, Ohio.)
 
The little village of Carroll, Ohio, lies just off the new state highway leading from Columbus, the state capital, to Lancaster, thirty miles south. Carroll is situated among the beautiful rolling hills of Fairfield County, of which Lancaster is the county seat , and is seven miles north of that latter town. The pleasant little stream that flows through the valley just south of Carroll was called the Hock-Hocking by the Indians and has given the name of the Hocking Valley to the region.
