Preble County has you covered!

Eight historical covered bridges highlight your visit to Preble County, Ohio, an area rich in agricultural heritage with picturesque prairies, rolling hills, and wetlands. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets past this scenery to bookend your days. Family fun and adventure is plentiful with festivals and events for many occasions, as well as camping, parks, hunting, and fishing.


Located in southwest Ohio along Interstate 70 with easy access to Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, and Indianapolis, big city attractions aren't far away, either. With so much to do in and around Preble County, there's something for everyone!


Upcoming events...

Local food movement...

If there's one thing Preble County knows (other than covered bridges), it's agriculture. Preble Roots is a movement aimed at providing a simple identification for food items (and other items) grown or produced in Preble County. It's just getting started. Local food producers can take advantage of this opportunity to be included in a new directory (for free), and you can license the use of the new Preble Roots logo for only $25 a year to mark your locally produced goods.
