Welcome to Greenfield, Ohio:
From the City Manager
Volunteers from the Y-Gradale organization showed up early Saturday, May 10 to pull weeds, trim bushes and plant flowers around the city building, with Greenfield Research helping to pay for some of the plants. City Manager Ron Coffey expressed thanks to Y-Gradale for helping out with this project as they have done for several years.
July is festival time in Greenfield!
The third weekend of July means festival time in Greenfield! That is the weekend for the Greene Countrie Towne Festival sponsored by the Greenfield Rotary Club. It's a festival that's been taking place going on 50 years thanks to the sponsorship of different organizations working for the betterment of Greenfield.
All of those years, the hallmarks of the festival have included free entertainment, a look at the Greenfield's rich history, a plethora of festival food and other pleasant diversions.
Proceeds from festival events help local organizations earn money for their various missions for the good of the community.
I hope to be in attendance for the Greene Countrie Towne Festival this year and look forward to seeing you as well.

Welcome to Greenfield!
Welcome to Greenfield! I invite you to visit 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.
