West Jefferson, Ohio
Welcome to West Jefferson, Ohio, a small community in Madison County, but still very close to Columbus. The community is built on “The National Road” (Route 40) and nearby the Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. The village has it’s own police and fire departments, a mayor and village council.
West Jefferson was founded in 1830 and today has a population of over 4,000 people and has over 1700 homes. Although a small town, there are numerous churches, a local library, a nursing home, and industry, a park, dining & shopping. It is also the home of the Jefferson local school district which is composed of Frey Elementary, Norwood elementary, West Jefferson Memorial Middle school, and West Jefferson high school. The Cypress Christian School is a private school serving this area.
The village boasts a “Commerce Park” at its western edge which includes a Target Distribution Center, a Krazy Glue factory, and Jefferson Industries. West Jefferson is also host to a campus of Battelle Memorial Institute, one of America’s primary research laboratories.
Each year the community hosts the Ox Roast and has a tremendous Christmas light display in the local park. Residents from around Madison County gather together each year to enjoy both of these events.
