Welcome to Greenfield, Ohio:
From the City Manager
Greenfield at a glance…
Is it possible to summarize Greenfield, Ohio in a few short minutes? Probably not, but it was an enjoyable challenge to put together a brief slideshow about our Greene Countrie Towne that encompasses some of the history, character and fun aspects of our community to give people who have never been to Greenfield a glimpse of life here. In the interest of brevity, a lot of images had to be left out, but I hope what made the cut helps tell the story. Please take a look by clicking the YouTube link above.

Welcome to Greenfield!
Welcome to Greenfield! The city building has been lit up for the holiday season and I am thankful to come from a town so rich in history that has produced so many interesting and talented people. Let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
I invite you to visit Greenfield during any season of the year and enjoy all that our southern Ohio community has to offer. We have interesting shops, fast food and slow food, modern amenities and enough history to fill several books. We also have a lifestyle that is laid back and connected to the natural wonders in these parts, such as three state parks close by, an 18-hole golf course, biking and hiking trails and much more.
In Greenfield you will find one of the finest public school campuses in the state. Edward Lee McClain High School houses a large and inimitable art collection designed to inspire students -- a long-lasting gift from a generous benefactor who made Greenfield his home.
I was born and raised in Greenfield and have found it to be a wonderful community with which to maintain a connection. It's not that we lack challenges, but people here share a common bond and work together to solve problems and advance good causes.
Greenfield offers a safe environment with quality services and an excellent hospital in the Adena Greenfield Medical Center. The cost of living here is relatively low (78.6 as of March 2012 -- with 100 being average), and people come for many reasons, including inexpensive housing, a location close to numerous rural attractions, and our relaxed lifestyle. People choose Greenfield for careers, to raise families, for weekend getaways, and to get away from the rat race permanently. Yet we are not far away from three major cities: Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton.
There are many reasons why people like to spend time in Greenfield. We are looking ahead to a bright future. Perhaps you will come for a festival, a sporting event, or to enjoy the natural beauty found in this part of Ohio. We are open for work and play, and invite you to come to our corner of northeast Highland County and see what Greenfield is all about. You may not stay a lifetime, but you surely will enjoy whatever time you spend here.
