Smithville, OH

The small village of Smithville, OH, sits about six miles northeast of Wooster along State Route 585. Smithville is home to a population of fewer than 1,300 people across a land area of just 1.2 square miles.

Situated along Sugar Creek, the village derives its name from Thomas Smith, a pioneer settler. Today, Smithville is home to the Wayne County Schools Career Center, as well as the campus of the Green Local School District. The intersection of Summit and Main Streets forms the center of town, close to a number of local churches. Stretches of green farmland fill the area, alongside many homes on sizable lots, plus a variety of sports fields. The Smithville Community Historical Society offers various special tours and a selection of local crafts.
