We may be a little biased, but we think Wilmington is a tremendous community in which to live, work, and raise a family. Located in northern Clinton County, it's the best of both worlds. We have all the benefits of a closely knit rural community, yet we are within an hours drive of the larger cities of Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus.

We have lots of green spaces, summer festivals, farmer's markets, a historic theater, quaint shops, beautiful outdoor murals, great restaurants, a thriving college, growing industries, and a supportive community.
