The Village of Chesterhill

Tucked into the rural hills of Morgan County lies the quaint Village of Chesterhill. Founded by Quakers in 1834, Chesterhill was an integral location for the Underground Railroad where “Freedom Seekers” would seek refuge in the village during their journey to freedom in Canada.

Today, Chesterhill is home to the Union Hall Theater, currently under renovation, where visitors will be able to enjoy live entertainment, the Multicultural Genealogical Center where you can learn about Chesterhill’s history with the Underground Railroad, and the Historical Quaker Meeting House which is still active and recognized by The Ohio Historical Society. Every year, hundreds of thrill seekers travel through Chesterhill along Ohio’s Windy 9’sTriple Nickel (Route 555) and Highway 377 to enjoy the scenic views, have a home cooked meal at the Triple Nickel Diner, or visit the eight woodland acres of the Historic Henman Cave Park. Take a drive down Goshen Run, a backroad, and experience what is known as The Old-World Amish area, where Amish buggies are a familiar site, and welcoming signs advertise Amish goods for purchase. For weekend getaways you can book a stay at your own private Milk House Cottage & Gardens where you can relax and unwind surrounded by nature, or delight in an adventure hiking the Buckeye Trail.

The village is also known for the Chesterhill Produce Auction, located just outside the village, where fresh local produce, hand-made wood products, and small livestock can be purchased during their seasonal weekly auctions.

The Village of Chesterhill is one of Morgan County’s hidden gems where you can escape and disconnect to a rolling landscape of beautiful views and stunning sunsets, immerse yourself in history, and savor all that rural Appalachia Ohio has to offer.
