We are a mid-sized American community of approximately 26,000 people, nestled in the center of Wayne County, home to some of the finest agricultural land in the state. If you draw a line from Columbus to Cleveland, Wooster is located close to the middle just off US 71. Multi-faceted is a an apt description of Wooster as it was recently named as one of Ohio's Best Hometowns by Ohio Magazine.
It is a community where citizens work together to help one another, socialize in the streets and rally in the face of economic or environmental adversity to create a friendly, vibrant, safe place for its populace. People in Wooster still get to know neighbors, and still find it in them to greet strangers passing by on the sidewalk, which makes it an easy place to call home. Yet Wooster's not a one-horse town.
Given the local presence of The Ohio State University OARDC and The College of Wooster a unique culture of opportunities presents itself here. Experiences such as the Ohio Light Opera and Wooster Symphony Orchestra provide a charm the average town of Wooster's size might not ordinarily possess. Wooster is blessed with a diverse economy that features notable manufacturing, education, transportation, technology, and healthcare companies, among others. We welcome you and your family and hope you enjoy your time here!
