Welcome to our community!

Our Community

Incorporated in 1851, the Village was established along a canal route for transporting goods as part of Ohio’s early canal system. The Village sits at the Rushcreek and Hocking River convergence. Major transportation systems include rail and State Route 33. Our Village is the gateway to the Hocking Hills region, linking southeast Ohio to the Greater Columbus metropolitan corridor. Within just a few miles from the Village are tourist attractions such as Wahkeena Nature Preserve, Clearcreek Metro Park, and Hide-a-way Hills.

Berne Union Local Schools is a key element to the Sugar Grove and greater Berne Township community. Each year, the Music Boosters and volunteers put on the “Sugar Grove Stars & Stripes” (annual Independence Day celebration). In the summer and fall, it is common to hear the Berne Union Golden Rockets Marching Band performing along Main Street. In late spring, the Village’s Main Street is also decorated by the High School Senior Class with the annual community-supported toilet-papering.

Sugar Grove is also home to Veterans’ Community Park, which offers a shelter house for rental of family reunions and other celebrations in the summer, as well as two baseball fields. The Village also maintains the historic Sugar Grove Cemetery located on Buckeye Road, just outside the corporation limits.

The Village is home to a local barber shop, a bar & grill, family-owned grocery store, three churches, U.S. Post Office, Columbia Gas offices, and several small businesses.

Hello All,

Fairfield County, as part of its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, is completing an update to its Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Plan.  The County is required to update this plan every 5 years.  The last update was completed in 2019.  

Fair housing choice is the ability of persons of similar income levels, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, military status, or national origin to have available to them the same housing choice.  The purpose of the plan is to identify impediments to the fair housing choice.

To help us prepare this plan, we encourage all the RPC members to take this survey.  We also ask that you post it to your websites or share on your local social media outlets.  We are trying to obtain as much resident feedback as possible.  The link to the survey is below.  It will be open through May 15th.


If you have any questions, please contact Holly Mattei via email.
