About The Village


Established in 1874 by the U.S. Postal Service at the request of founders Jacob Reed and his partner Joseph Crooks, Crooksville has continued to thrive for the past 126 years. Located off State Rt. 93 in Perry County, the Village has worked diligently over the years to keep the environment friendly for families and business. Their efforts have been rewarded with the 2001 Governor’s Award for Partnership in the Arts, and Tree City Status since 1996.


Mayor's Address

On behalf of the Village of Crooksville, I would like to welcome you to our village website. As a lifelong resident of our Village, I have found it to be a wonderful faith-based community with a strong workforce. It’s not that we lack challenges, but people here share a common bond and work together to solve problems and advance good causes.

We offer a safe environment with quality emergency services. The cost of living here is relatively low, and people come for many reasons, including inexpensive housing, and a relaxed lifestyle. Our Village has a number of recreational assets which include an indoor recreational center, North and South Parks, and an outdoor Olympic size swimming pool.

We have numerous rural attractions within minutes of the Village such as the Ohio Pottery Museum, Perry State Forest, Wayne National Forest, Burr Oak and Dillon State Parks, which offer camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, boating, and ATV activities.

Keeping the public informed through social media is the future of community involvement and development. I hope your visit to our website has been informative and we welcome your comments.
