Madison County (Ohio) > London (Ohio)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

London is a town in Mid-Ohio.

Understand

Downtown London (Ohio)

When the organization of Madison County took place on March 1, 1810, there was no city or village suitable to be selected as a county seat. The General Assembly appointed a commission to choose a site for the seat of justice. They choose a 200 acre tract of land in Union Township belonging to a John Murfin. Lots were laid for a new town which the commissioners called London.

For the past 190 years London has served as the community hub for Madison County and continues to grow in a planned and directed manner. The 2000 U.S. census has the official population of London at 8, 771. The population for Madison County exceeds 40,000.

As people become more willing to commute long distances in exchange for a more rural lifestyle, London has grown considerably. Since 1980, the land size of London has increased over 70%.

London's rich heritage and sense of history are evident in the newly completed Downtown Restoration/Revitalization Project. Citizens, community leaders and consultants are working together to guide the development of new residential areas and expanded community services, while maintaining London's distinctive character.
