Learn more about Sunbury

Sunbury, OH

Founded in 1816 by Lawrence Myers, the village of Sunbury is located in Delaware County, Ohio. Myers built an inn at the intersection of two of the largest stagecoach avenues. Expecting a large number of travelers in the area, Myers knew this was a great opportunity.

The first stagecoach arrived in Sunbury in 1820, traveling from Mount Vernon. As a matter of fact, many famous stagecoach travelers arrived in Sunbury. These include Rutherford B. Hayes, William H. Harrison, Henry Clay, and John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed. The last stagecoach left Sunbury in 1873 due to the prevalence of the railway system.

Since its foundation, Sunbury has become a thriving community with the development of the Showa Corporation factory, which manufactures automotive parts for Honda of America. In addition to Showa, Sunbury is home to numerous grocery stores and fast food restaurants, including McDonald’s.

Sunbury’s educational system, its K-12 school district known as the Big Walnut Local School District, attends to the neighboring village of Galena. In 2007, their sports team, the “Big Walnut Golden Eagles”, became football division State Champs. However, one of the most notable attractions located in Sunbury is the Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial. This monument honors each soldier from Ohio who has been MIA or KIA since 9/11.
