Fairfield County


Fairfield County was founded on December 9, 1800, and was named for its fair countryside. As of the 2010 census, the county had a population of  146,156 and the county seat is Lancaster.  The Pickerington area has seen rapid growth in recent years, becoming a popular suburban community for those who work in the Columbus area.

Lancaster is the birthplace of Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman. Some of the “must-attend” events in Fairfield County include: The Lancaster Festival, a yearly celebration of music and the arts; the Pickerington Violet Festival; and the Millersport Sweet Corn Festival.

Fairfield County is home to Buckeye Lake, a popular place for Central Ohioans to boat and fish. While a majority of Buckeye Lake is in Fairfield County, the lake spreads throughout Licking and Perry County, too.

Some of Fairfield County’s major employers include: Anchor Hocking, Cyril Scott Co., Fairfield County, Fairfield Medical Center, Kroger Co., Lancaster City Schools, Diamond Power, Ralston Foods, and Pickerington Local Schools.
