Learn more about Alexandria

Alexandria, OH

The village of Alexandria was established in 1830 and has a total land area of 0.25 square miles. Although less than 600 residents currently reside in Alexandria, several high-profile people were residents of Alexandria.

Known as the “Father of Dentistry” and the first oral microbiologist, Willoughby Dayton Miller was born in Alexandria, OH but died in Newark, OH. Sixth generation apple farmer, Mitchell Lynd, opened the family-owned apple orchard to the public in the late 1960s and even added additional products such as a bakery, roasted peanuts, and flavored ciders to the market. Bill Comstock was a member of the vocal band quartet, the Four Freshmen. The group was formed in 1948, but the legacy continues to this day. Erma Bombeck Award winner, Georgia Baldwin Hubley, is an author who showcases her personal childhood experiences in the form of magazine articles and short stories. She also contributes to the inspirational best-selling series, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

In addition to these notable individuals, Alexandria also has a profound history of citizens who were critical in the Underground Railroad establishment during the abolitionist movement. They were part of the network that helped shelter fugitive slaves who escaped to the North and Canada on their way to freedom.

Currently, the Alexandria Public Library and the Alexandria Museum are two of the most important fixtures in the area. Recently, local artist David Tefft designed and created the “Little Free Library”. This creation houses several books that encourages residents of all ages to “Take a book, read it, and pass it on”. The museum is actually a small house in the center of Alexandria, operated by volunteers, and contains historical artifacts, including weapons, wood carvings, prehistoric stone tools, and clothing.
