City of Celina, Ohio


A common misconception exists that Ohio's western border is Interstate 75. Nestled in between the real border and the interstate is one of the best-kept secrets in Ohio. Those who have ventured into this land know of its value.

Ask someone who is familiar with west central Ohio to locate Celina and chances are they will respond "by the lake." Indeed Celina is in the center of Mercer County on the shores of Grand Lake.

Half the population of the United States is less than two hours away by air. Fifty percent of the nation's manufacturing and over thirty percent of the nation's farm production is within 600 miles of Celina. To the north lie Toledo and Detroit, to the west Indianapolis and Ft. Wayne, to the east Cleveland and Columbus, and to the south Cincinnati and Dayton.
